Roots make a tree

long befo re it eve n

They carry the 
sustenance in those 

formative years 

and guarantee firm 

grounding as the

chosen to set our 

roots here. 

"But blessed 
is the man 
tuho trusts 

in the LORD. 

is in him." 

In that 

tumultuous first 

year, we timidly 

throw out our 

roots, looking 

for a place where 

they'll stay, 

where we can be 

grounded. We're 

stretched a little 

thin, but rooted 


A year later,

a little stronger,

that deeper, 

richer soil.

The roots are finally 

pulling up water, 

and what was so 

long growing in

struggling, on the 

verge of breaking 

the surface... 

And there's a sprout, 

perhaps not all that

when the sun gets

dries up, those 

roots are still there, 

drawing water from

Nearly every Olivetian in the last 
23 years has had the chance to meet 
Carol Reams. Whether as assistant 
to the registrar, Sunday school 
teacher, or in any of her other roles 
in service to the Olivet community, 
Carol has radiated a sense of her 
sincere love and care for everyone 
she meets. 

Carol grew up on a farm in west- 
central Missouri as the youngest 
of three girls. It wasn't long before 
she became a skilled farm hand 
and cook, taking on these roles as 
her sisters married and her mother 
cared for an ill grandparent. 

Life was not all work; Carol had 
her share of adventure too. Her 
father piloted a small plane and 
had a landing field on their farm. 
Once, while Carol was riding with 
her father, the plane's landing gear 
caught on a fence and after a flip 
or two, Carol found herself and her 
father safely sitting upside down in 
their overturned plane. 

Carol eventually took on even 
greater responsibility in her 
family's home when her mother 
fell sick. Caring for both her mother 
and her family's needs. Carol's 
early experience helped develop a 
passion for service and selflessness 
that carries on to today. 

She eventually struck out for 
Topeka, Kansas, at the urging of 
her mother, who wanted better 
opportunities for her than were 
available closer to home. 

It was in Kansas that Carol met 
Max Reams, who was teaching 
a Sunday school class at a local 
Nazarene church. The two hit it off 
and were soon married. 

While in Topeka, Carol took up 
working as a secretary of a school 
of nursing. As her husband pursued 
graduate work at the Universiy of 
Kansas and then at Washington 
University in St. Louis, Carol 
followed, developing her expert 
secretarial skills in the registrar's 

Carol was brought up with a 
faithful Methodist church family, 
and it was only natural that she and 
her husband would become heavily 
involved in the church wherever 
they happened to be. 

When the couple finally arrived 
at Olivet in the mid-1980s, Carol 
leapt straightaway into service at 
College Church. 

During her years at College 
Church, she has been the supervisor 
of the nursery program, organized 
Chicago Central District lay retreats 
and spoken at various church 
marriage retreats and district 
events. She also volunteered with 
her husband in providing marital 
and premarital counseling. 

In addition to her service in the 
church, Carol has provided the 
Olivet community with more than 
27 years in the registrar's office. 
Every student who walks across 
the graduation platform does so 
in part because of Carol's efforts 
behind the scenes, ordering their 
caps and gowns and helping them 
complete their final paperwork and 
bills before the big day. 

Throughout the year, Carol cares 
for students' day-to-day needs 
and questions, offering them her 
wisdom from years as the senior 
employee under the registrar 

himself, Dr. Jim Knight. 

Her fellow employees in the 
registrar's office can attest to 
Carol's skill, professionalism and 
loving personality. Secretary Kelly 
Wellenreiter describes Carol as "one 
of the kindest, most compassionate 
people I have ever met." 

Carol is always willing to listen to 
students and her coworkers, readily 
offering an encouraging word and 
prayerful attention. According to 
Wellenreiter, "You could not ask for 
a more gentle soul!" 

As one might expect, Carol 
continues her ministry outside the 
office, now as a volunteer chaplain 
for Riverside Medical Center. She 
leads worship for two Sunday 
services every month in a retirement 
center and for a monthly service at 
an assisted living facility. 

Husband Dr. Reams and his 
geology students have long enjoyed 
Carol's famous pumpkin bread 
and cookies and geology parties, 
along with the socials, showers and 
receptions she hosts for faculty 
members and their families. 

An accomplished student herself, 
Carol completed an A. A. in business, 
a B.S. in psychology, and a M.RC. 
(Master of Pastoral Counseling) at 

Carol is the mother of three 
children, Brian, Anneand Kayla,and 
is now the proud grandmother of 
five. Carol and Dr. Reams have been 
married 48 years. The Aurora staff is 
proud to dedicate this year's Aurora 
to such a caring and dedicated 
member of our Olivet community.

The Tree of Learning 

It was amusing ...and notsoamus- 
ing at the same time. 

Several years ago, not long after 
the construction of Benner Library 
and Resource Center, Olivet decided 
to create a campus "quad" between 
the library and Ludwig Center. It was 
then, and remains today, the most 
heavily traveled spot on campus. A 
generous gift was received from the 
Gerald Decker family and soon the 
work began to transform this barren 
space into "The Decker Quad." 

The shape at the center of the quad 
was designed as a large "O" with the 
names of senior class presidents and 
ASC presidents to be placed around 
the brick walkway. Plantings were 
added to enhance the beauty of the 
area and collegiate benches were dis- 
tributed throughout the quad. The 
sidewalks were expanded and there 
was a small stage area at the south 
end to facilitate student and campus 

All of these features were impor- 
tant parts of the plan - but the heart 
of the entire project was right in the 
middle of a large raised area bordered 
with brick and stone. 

There, with great pageantry, the 
University planted the Olivet Naza- 
rene University "Tree of Learning" and 
it is then that the story turned funny 
...and not funny. 

Within a few weeks following the 
dedication of the quad and the plant- 
ing of the tree its leaves began to dis- 

color and soon fall. The revered 'Tree 
of Learning" which was to be a living 
symbol of learning, died! Very quick- 
ly, without fanfare, the dead tree was 
uprooted and replaced with a healthy 
new sapling. Once again, little by little 
the new tree also began to wane. 

Jokes soon followed . . . "Did you 
hear that the tree of learning keeps 
dying at Olivet?" 

Soon the University, with the help 
of a good horticulturist, diagnosed 
the problem. There wasn't sufficient 
soil and proper drainage for the roots 
of the tree to sink deeply into the 
ground below the now "paved and 
bricked" lawn. The trees simply could 
not flourish without strong roots. So, 
once more, with renewed vigor and 
enhanced understanding, a new tree 
was planted in an improved soil base. 
Sure enough, once the root system 
began to spread down and out the 
tree flourished. Learning was once 
again alive and well at Olivet. 

The tree in the quad is a living 
metaphor of life. We all must have a 
strong and healthy root system if we 
are to thrive. Thus, one of the most 
important aspects of life at Olivet is 
the process students go through to 
establish their roots. 

First of all, students put down aca- 
demic roots that nourish their learn- 
ing and professional development. 
Academic roots are not easily estab- 
lished. This type of root-system is 
developed through the hard work of 
discipline and study, not just once in 

awhile, or even a semester here and 
there. A strong undergraduate edu- 
cation becomes a source of fruitful- 
ness throughout life. The rewards of 
this hard work are plentiful both now 
and particularly in the future at work, 
in graduate school and in life itself. It 
was Aristotle who noted, "The roots 
of education are bitter, but the fruit is 

Secondly, students also put down 
personal roots that result in maturity 
and character development. The per- 
son we become is a result of a series 
of choices, great and small, that are 
made throughout the daily living of 
our lives on this campus. 

Third and most importantly, Ol- 
ivet provides the soil for students to 
establish strong and healthy spiritual 
roots. From this source, rooted in 
God's very presence and nurtured by 
His grace, spiritual fruit springs forth. 

This year's Aurora highlights the 
fact that the fruit of your life - your 
character, your professional life, your 
personal life and your spiritual well- 
being - will be determined by the 
roots that are being put down dur- 
ing these days at Olivet. The Psalm- 
ist declares that the blessed person is 
one who ". . . is like a tree planted by 
streams of water, which yields its fruit in 
season and whose leaf does not wither. 
Whatever he/she does shall prosper" 
(Psalm 1:3). 

Whatever you do, don't let the 
roots die! 

| Dr. John C. Bowling

For students and parents alike, 
move-in day is a day filled with 
emotion and excitement. Fresh- 
man Andrew Jerrick, the first in his 
family to put his roots down at Ol- 
ivet, felt that the process was a little 
overwhelming. "It's the first time 
you realize, 'I'm going to college!'" 

Every year, countless freshmen 
across the country start college, un- 
sure of what to expect. That's why 
Olivet holds its JumpStart new stu- 
dent conference every year — to give 
freshmen and transfer students the 
tools they need to succeed at Ol- 
ivet. Dr. Tim Elmore spoke this year 
about growth, responsibility and the 
habits that all Olivet students should 
carry with them for life. Freshman 
Stephanie Liakopoulos said she felt 
prepared because of the conference. 
"They help you realize that this is a 
much bigger responsibility than high 
school, and when you get to Olivet, 
you don't have to know everything. 
But you do need to be serious." The 
conference not only prepared her; 
it encouraged her, too. "I'd definitely 
keep [JumpStart] going in future 
years," Stephanie said. "It made me 
really excited to start the new year."

What do a mechanical bull, a 
petting zoo and a rock climbing wall 
have in common? If you answered 
"ONU's Second Annual Back-To-School 
Block Party," you're right! 

Students packed the quad to 
celebrate the start of a new academic 
year with this year's county fair- 
themed block party. For that genuine 
fair experience, ASC set up carnival 
booths and a petting zoo. Senior 
Janie Sommer echoed a widely felt 
sentiment: "Caressing those baby 
goats and sheep rekindled my love for 
the farm, animals and wool." 

Sodexo even joined in, supplying 
traditional fair foods such as elephant 
ears, mini corn dogs and iced 

The crowd encircling the most 
popular attraction - the mechanical 
bull - roared with excitement when our 
own university president, Dr. Bowling, 
tried his hand at taming the beast. 

Thinking back to the block party, 
senior Amber Doan looked wistfully 
into the distance and reminisced,"Holy 
moly, that was quite a shindig."

Ollies Follies game day: one of 
the most intense days of the year for 
intramural sports players. "Ollies Fol- 
lies is a heated battle between the 
classes," junior Kreigh Cook said. "It's 
all about class pride and bragging 
rights for the rest of the year." Every 
year at Ollies Follies, the classes clash 
in flag football, ultimate Frisbee, vol- 
leyball, and other outdoor sports. 
But this year, most of the excite- 
ment happened under the lights. 
The wacky games started in the eve- 
ning and included tug-o-war, eating 
contests, the human knot, and the 
infamous tire grab. This year intro- 
duced a new game in which pairs of 
contestants formed a human whee 
barrow and bobbed for marshmal- 
lows in a pool of flour. Hilary Gilkey, 
senior, enjoyed having the wacky 
games at night rather than in the af- 
ternoon, as has been done in previ- 
ous years."l think there's better turn- 
out [at night]," she said. 

Each class represented a differ- 
ent major city in the United States 
at this year's Ollies Follies. The 
freshmen represented Chicago, the 
sophomores, Houston, the juniors, 
Los Angeles, and the seniors, New 
York City. At game day's end, the 
freshmen came in fourth place with 
3,500 points, the sophomores in 
third with 6,500, the seniors in sec- 
ond with 7,000, and the juniors led 
the way with 8,000 points.

Ollies Follies competition culmi- 
nates with the variety show, where 
students have delivered epic song 
and dance performances. This year 
surpassed all other years. 

The freshmen showed that if their 
respective majors don't work out, at 
least a number of them have a future 
in Chicago tourism. With glimpses of 
Oprah and an Olivet twist on "All That 
Jazz,"they showed the upperclassmen 
they weren't going down easy. 

The sophomores, channeling their 
inner Texans, took a plotline to a new 
level by connecting their intro video 
to their dance routine, which com- 
bined hip-hop with country line danc- 
ing and ended with the "Hoedown 

The juniors showed that not only 
can they make a crazy YouTube vid- 
eo that will land them on ESPN, but 
they'll also flaunt their celebrity status 
by rolling out the red carpet in LA — 
or in this case, Chalfant Hall — and 
performing a catwalk to Kanye West's 
"Flashing Lights." 

However, no performance could 
top the Class of 201 0's walk down the 
streets of New York that earned them 
their first Ollies Follies victory. Their 
extravagantly detailed set included 
signs for "Abstinence and the City" 
and "Gospel Girl" as well as students 
dressed as hobos and bucket drum- 
mers. The seniors ended their perfor- 
mance by dropping a giant yoga ball 
draped in Christmas lights to ring in 
2010. Senior Jimmy Guffey took the 
opportunity to propose to girlfriend 
Joy Dierickx during the "New Year" 
celebration, sealing the deal under a 
shower of confetti.

Do you want to spend your school 
nights singing show tunes with your 
friends over and over again? Con- 
gratulations. You're just what we're 
looking for. Everyone who auditioned 
for this year's Broadway Revue got a 
chance to participate in at least one 
number and experience the camara- 
derie that comes with being a part of 
the popular production. 

This year's show was directed by 
Jase Hackman, Brittany Thomas, and 
Sarah Yanchick. Together with the ac- 
tors, dancers and singers, the team 
worked to bring some Broadway fa- 
vorites to their classmates with num- 
bers from Shakespeare on Broadway, 
Beauty and the Beast, Annie, Anything 
Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie. 

Junior Jake Boss said his favorite 
part of Broadway Revue was "getting 
to meet new people and make new 
friendships." Morgan Radziminowski, 
a sophomore who choreographed 
and danced in the show said, "It was 
great getting to know and work with 
a bunch of really talented people who 
were completely dedicated to pulling 
off a great show!"

If you ask Olivet students what 
dorm life means to them, many 
would say late night video games, 
floor parties and running up and 
down the halls screaming at two in 
the morning for no apparent rea- 
son. The unfortunate few would say 
that it means putting up with all of 
the above. 

Dorm life at Olivet means com- 
munity, fellowship and more than 
a few late nights. Hannah Escal- 
ante, freshman RA in Parrott, un- 
derstands what it takes to make a 
good living environment for all of 
her Parrott girls. 

"As a team of RAs, we try to shape 
them and help them to look to God 
for guidance. At the same time, we 
want to become a friend and not 
just a person in charge." 

Hannah's floor goes to many of 
the school events, such as the block 
party, as a group. But whether 
they're in or out of the dorm, they 
know how to have fun. 

"One night we built a fort in the 
study room," says Hannah. "Only 
a few of us slept in it, but it was 
a good day." Good days and late 
nights: what dorm life is really

The annual Candy Costume Fest 
is part of the larger, campus-wide 
Halloween celebration in which 
students dress up in elaborate cos- 
tumes and go trick-or-treating from 
dorm to dorm. Sophomore Angela 
Rivas said, "It's always a lot of fun to 
see all the hard work and creativity 
that goes into all the costumes. It's a 
great opportunity to have a safe and 
fun time with friends!"Class councils 
decorated their respective dorms in 
competition with one another for 

the scariest theme. Sophomores 
easily won the contest, making their 
dorm a nightmarish funhouse with 
everything from clowns to broken 

The costume contest was also a 
huge part of the festivities. Opening 
with Director of Campus Recreation 
Matt Smith's video of his rotation 
of Halloween costumes, the com- 
petition proved to be an outland- 
ish display of humor and incredible 
creativity. The highlight of the night 

was, oddly enough, immediately af- 
ter the contest itself when a group 
of students came dancing from the 
back of the room in a parody of the 
popular "JK Wedding Dance" You- 
Tube video, stealing the show. Kayla 
Rolling, sophomore class president, 
called the parody (along with eating 
caramel apples), "the highlights ofj

Homecoming is always a special 
event for both students and alumni 
who see their campus transformed 
into a festive three-day celebration of 
the purple and gold. 

This year's events included tradi- 
tional favorites with Homecoming 
Chapel and Tiger sports, along with 
some added entertainment from, 
among others, comedian Mark Lowry 
and a theatrical production of "Over 
the River and Through the Woods." 

The opening event was a lavish cer- 
emony that saw Sarah Clark crowned 
the 2009 Homecoming Queen. She 
and her court were presented to the 
student body at the next morning's 
Homecoming Chapel in a service 
featuring special music from the Jazz 
band and The Olivetians. Dr. James 
Diehl, a former general superinten- 
dent and Olivet graduate, delivered 
the sermon. 

The men's basketball team played 
an exhibition home opener that gave 

the Tigers' Homecoming crowd a 100- 
40 victory. Despite a disappointing 
loss at Ward Field, Tiger football fans 
enjoyed a spirited game and unusu- 
ally warm weather. 

As is often the case for returning 
alumni, home is never quite the same; 
the thousands who attended campus 
events saw the tall steel beams of the 
eventual Betty and Kenneth Hawkins 
Centennial Chapel rising from its con- 
crete foundation, which was a patch 
of grass only a year before. 

And while the events and people 
and infrastructure will continue to 
change and grow, some things will 
remain the same. University President 
John Bowling ended the year's Home- 
coming celebration with a Sunday 
morning prayer breakfast in which he 
thanked God for His unending grace 
and the extraordinary blessings He 
continues to pour over Olivet.

This year's Homecoming celebra- 
tion opened in glittering style with a 
beautiful coronation ceremony that 
saw Sarah Clark crowned Homecom- 
ing Queen. 

At the announcement, Olivet's First 
Lady, Jill Bowling, placed the delicate 
tiara atop Sarah's head as President 
Bowling embraced her and offered a 
word of congratulations. Sarah and 
her escort, Peter Foster, then crossed 
the stage, offering a few impromp- 
tu dance moves that elicited some 
laughs from the audience. 

Sharing the spotlight with Sarah 
were four additional senior ladies: 
Elizabeth Bernhardt, Joy Dierickx, 
Kate Burkey and Amanda Siems. They 
were accompanied by seniors Harri- 
son Agan, Mark Bell, Jonathan Burkey 
and Dustin Hogan, respectively. 

Each young woman was chosen 
by the student body to represent the 

best of Olivet and represent the year's 
theme: "Radiant." 

While the ladies were certainly ra- 
diant in their white gowns and glow- 
ing smiles, they reflected the theme in 
a wholly different sense: 

"Let your light shine before men," 
reads Matthew 5:16, "that they may 
see your good deeds and praise your 
Father in heaven." 

Sarah, a biology major, has volun- 
teered much of her time as a student 
to such varied organizations as Com- 
passionate Ministries, Disaster Re- 
sponse, Sister 2 Sister and Mu Kappa. 

The evening's close brought a final, 
lighthearted surprise. While the re- 
maining ladies wore their own, small- 
er tiaras, the men took it upon them- 
selves to dig up their own crowns. So 
out of their brown jackets came neatly 
folded paper Burger King crowns.

Whether taking a day trip to the 
city, heading home to see family or 
sticking around campus and goof- 
ing off with friends, the weekend is 
the perfect opportunity to accom- 
plish what doesn't fit in between 
lectures and study groups. 

lany students find themselves 
swamped with papers to write, 
books and articles to read and 
meetings to attend, and so the 
weekend arrives with a promise of 
relaxation. It's a time to unwind af- 
ter five stressful days of college life 
hit you one after the other. 

Of course, all of this relaxation 
does not mean there is nothing to 
do. Students often find their week- 
end calendars filling to a breaking 
point. They may attend one of sev- 
eral campus-sponsored events, go 
to a concert or take a night out on 
the town. Still others might see a 
sporting event or even go camping. 
Those with a creative heart and a 
solid work ethic to get their home- 
work done during the week find 
themselves with unlimited possi- 
bilities come Friday afternoon.

Visiting alumni and students alike 
were treated to some theater over 
Homecoming weekend with Joe 
DiPietro's comedy "Over the River 
and Through the Woods." 

The cast was composed of only 
six actors: Tony Allen, Laura DeMer- 
ell, Emily Dillard, Jack Kehoe, Zarah 
Miller and Merrick Robison. 

The play centered on a young 
single man, Nick Cristano (Tony Al- 
len), who was on the verge of taking 
a job across the country, leaving his 
extended Italian family behind. 

His grandparents (Merrick Robi- 
son, Zarah Miller, Jack Kehoe and 
Emily Dillard) plot to keep Nick local 
by introducing him to an attractive, 
single girl (Laura DeMerell). As the 
story develops and Nick learns more 
about what makes a family, the play 
repeats its message through a clas- 
sic Italian mantra, spoken by Nick's 
Grandpa Frank: "Tengo famiglia!" It 
was Grandpa Frank's way of remind- 
ing Nick that he should always con- 
siderthathehasafamily, and should 
put it first in whatever he decides. 

Often hilarious and sometimes 
heartbreaking, the cast offered 
the gathered generations of Olivet 
alumni a pertinent lesson in the im- 
portance of family.

Dr. Neal Woodruff seems to love 
throwing Testament men's choir for a 
loop, come mid-October. One minute, his 
choir will be practicing an arrangement 
of a classic hymn, and the next, Dr. Wood- 
ruff will have his stunned men fumble 
through the lines of a chorus from Han- 
del's "Messiah." 

It's for a purpose, though; by Novem- 
ber, the men join in with the women's 
choir, Chrysalis, the mixed choir, Orpheus, 
and the orchestra, rehearsing for the mu- 
sic department's annual performance of 
Handel's "Messiah." 

Handel's famous oratorio tells the sto- 
ry of our salvation, from Old Testament 
prophesy to the birth, life, death and res- 
urrection of Christ and His second com- 
ing. The work, first performed in 1742, 
continues to be popular, especially as a 
Christmas tradition.

According to Dr. Woodruff, "The great 
thing about this work is that it's rarely 
performed in its entirety. We can pick 
and choose pieces based on soloists' 

A concertgoer unfamiliar with the ora- 
torio might assume the the work's most 
famous portion, the Hallelujah Chorus, 
signals the end of the performance. It's 
not Christ's resurrection, but His return, 
that signals the conclusion. 

"The ['Worthy Is the Lamb'] chorus in 
the end ... even though it's not as famous 
as the Hallelujah Chorus, still holds a lot 
of clout," says junior Merrick Robison. 

Besides, says Merrick, a trumpet player, 
"If you leave after the Hallelujah Chorus, 
you miss 'And the Trumpet Shall Sound'."

The 2010 Winter Banquet went 
off without a hitch. The theme for 
the year was "Northern Lights," 
and the decorations reflected this 
theme well. The backdrops on the 
stage were lit up with brilliant col- 
ors throughout the night, and the 
centerpiece of each table contained 
a vase with a glowing blue light. 

This was the first year that the 
banquet was not held at Christ- 
mas time, but this did not dimin- 
ish the fun or the festivities. The 
service was wonderful, and the 
chicken dinner was delicious. 

The night was topped off by two 
wonderful elements. The first was a 
white chocolate bomb dessert that 
had the students reeling in sugar 
and chocolate. The second element 
was the entertainment, Denver and 

the Mile High Orchestra. They sang 
many of their own songs with spe- 
cial drum, saxophone and trumpet 
solos, and also sang many clas- 
sic hymns in a contemporary way. 

Junior Jerry Scheller especially 
liked all of the new elements of 
the night. He says, "The new ideas, 
theme and awesome food and en- 
tertainment were very enjoyable this 
year. I especially liked the dessert.' 

This year's banquet was 
definite success and the white 
chocolate bomb will be re- 
membered for years to come

Her friends sometimes call her 
Teapot, a silly interpretation of her 
first name, Thiphaphone, but this 
senior social work major usually 
goes by her middle name, Crystal. 

Crystal "Teapot" Sivilay is from a 
Chicago suburb. But while she may be 
from Elgin, Illinois, her roots certainly 
go much deeperthan that. Her parents 
ome from Laos, a Southeast Asian 
nation that lies just south of China 
and neighbors Thailand and Vietnam. 

Crystal traces her Lao family all 
che way back to the nation's earli- 
est Christian converts. Now in the 
Jnited States, her family continues 
n the faith; Crystal's grandfather 
olanted a church in Elgin, and two 
}f her uncles are currently pastors. 

Even with a strong Christian back- 
ground, attending a Christian col- 
ege was never a sure thing - her 
parents hadn't attended college at 
ill. Crystal had always planned to 

attend a state school, and was hesi- 
tant when her cousin, who was at- 
tending Olivet, asked her to visit. 

Crystal relented and was struck 
by the community she discovered 
in her cousin's dorm. "She knew so 
many people and they knew each 
other. It wasn't this big campus 
where you'd walk down the street 
and you wouldn't know anybody." 

She attended a chapel service 
and started a conversation with her 
cousin's RA, who shared a little more 
about Olivet's Christian purpose and 
commitment to guiding students 
in life beyond academics. "So that's 
what your mission's about here?" 
Crystal asked the RA. "That's cool." 

But that mission soon became far 
more important to Crystal than she 
would have imagined. Crystal's grand- 
fathered shortly beforeshearrived at 
spent her first days in the dorm alone. 

"I was so pathetic," she remembers. 

But, Crystal says, "My RA sought 
me out and invested in me," one 
of the very things that drew her 
to the school in the first place. The 
next year, Crystal became an RA. 

Now a senior social work major, 
Crystal is devoted to sharing that same 
love with people beyond her school. 

While Crystal is not yet sure what 
she plans to do after graduation, she 
has a desire to use her degree to help 
families like hers who are immigrating 
to the United States, who often have 
a difficult time navigating through the 
immigration process. It's something 
not too different from what her RA did 
for her four years ago. 

As an RA, "I made it a point to be 
that same person my RA was to me," 
Crystal says. "To show those who don't 
think they belong here that they do."

Part of what makes Olivet a 
great place for developing one's 
roots is the richness and diversity 
pf its soil, so to speak. Filling their 
-ole as the soil, the faculty and 
itaff exist to train their students 
and challenge them to grow. A 
Dortion of that training now comes 
: rom Dr. Mark Frisius, who joined 
:he School of Theology and Chris- 
:ian Ministry last year. 

Following his first year with 
Dlivet students, Mark has become 
i well-liked instructor in courses 
Dn the New Testament and early 
:hurch history. 

One might be surprised to find 
hat Mark's educational back- 
ground is hardly Nazarene; his 
)ost-secondary education comes 
argely from Catholic institutions, 
vhere he also taught before arriv- 
ng at Olivet. 

According to Mark, "there are 

many similarities, as well as many 
differences" between his experi- 
ences before and at Olivet. One 
of the main differences, he points 
out, "is the emphasis on holiness. 
Holiness is a major part of the 
Wesleyan tradition, and features 
prominently throughout Olivet." 
That emphasis, he says, shows in 
the culture of students and faculty. 

"There was a different type of 
ethos among the students and 
faculty," he says. 

Still, Mark is no stranger to the 
Nazarene culture that pervades 
Olivet; he grew up in an evangeli- 
cal church that is part of the very 
sameWesleyan-holiness move- 
ment from which the Nazarene 
Church sprang. 

Whatever his background, the 
faculty of the School of Theology 
and Christian Ministry have ea- 
gerly welcomed Mark and his wife, 

Ellen, as members of their family. 
"The students, faculty and staff all 
make Olivet an incredible place to 
live and work," he says. "It is won- 
derful to be able to interact with 
so many people who passionately 
love the Lord." 

Any student who meets Mark 
will soon discover that he is an 
incredibly energetic professor who 
particularly enjoys sand volleyball. 

"So far, I have had the opportu- 
nity to play on two sand volleyball 
teams, which was an absolute 

Now a part of the Olivet fam- 
ily, Mark and Ellen have recently 
welcomed a new member to their 
own family. The couple adopted Eli 
from South Korea in February, just 
in time for his first birthday.

When asked to sum up her past, 
present and future in two words, 
senior Kelsey Moreau responded 
by saying, "Peace and blessings." 
These two words fit her life well. 
Kelsey was born in Nairobi, Africa, 
where her parents served as mis- 
sionaries until she was 3 years old. 
Last year she had the opportunity to 
travel back to Nairobi and visit, which 
was a special experience for her. As a 
senior social work major, Kelsey feels 
the call to "work with immigrants and 
refugees." She had the opportunity 
to travel to Austria for 12 weeks and 
Spain for 10 weeks and attend two 
different Bible schools. She says that 
through that experience she gained 
m appreciation for the Bible that 
he had never had before. Kelsey still 
feels a call on her life to work with 
other people and particularly feels 
ailed to other cultures. She says, "I 

feel really connected to East Africa, 
but am honestly open to anything." 

Kelsey is very involved at Olivet 
and has taken her passion to work 
with other people and channeled it 
into her work with Urban Children's 
Ministry. She is one of about 50 vol- 
unteers who work in this ministry. 
Kelsey's buddy is a high school girl 
who, she says, "I've loved getting 
to know. We have really different 
lives but the great thing about [the 
group] is that it doesn't even matter 
where we come from, we can just 
hang out for an hour of our week." 

As Kelsey works hard on her ma- 
jor as well as giving to her other ac- 
tivities, she looks forward to what 
her future holds after graduation. 
She feels that Olivet has equipped 
her with a wonderful education, 
enabled her to meet great friends, 
and she is newly engaged to the 

man that she "can't wait to marry." 
From life in Nairobi to looking for- 
ward to her marriage, Kelsey has come 
a long way and grown in many ways, 
but she credits much back to her 
Christian upbringing and strong mor- 
als and ideals that she was taught at 
Olivet. She says, "Christian fellowship 
and community is necessary." Kelsey 
knows that while these influences 
are important, it is up to individuals 
to make the most of what they have 
been given. She says that as she leaves 
Olivet she knows that "growth has 
happened in each semester here and 
I've come to know God more." From 
her roots in Nairobi, to experiences 
all over the world, to studying at Ol- 
ivet, Kelsey has been firmly planted in 
what she believes and is now growing 
and blooming out of that foundation.

Erin Salzman didn't have to go 
ar to find a way to use her gifts, 
jrowing up with her older brother 
ind sister on a farm outside Peot- 
)ne, Illinois, Erin developed a pas- 
ion for softball that took her across 
he country to play. Closer to home, 
lowever, was her opportunity to 
)lay and teach softball at the col- 
ege level. 

Though she had always lived 
lear Olivet, it was not until she de- 
ided she wanted to play in college 
hat she took an interest in attend- 
ng the University. 

After she visited campus a few 
imes, she found that "the atmo- 
phere and people here just made 
ne feel like this was where I should 
»e for the next four years." 

However, she had heard that the 
oftball program was tough, which, 

to her, meant the possibility of not 
making the cut. "I never thought my 
athleticism was anything special or 
a gift to be used." 

Still, Erin showed up and proved 
that she had more than what it took 
to succeed. After playing for two 
years, Erin is now a student assis- 
tant coach for the team. 

According to Erin, playing for 
the Lady Tigers was "incredibly 
challenging and made me grow so 

Now readily aware that she "can 
use any gift for God," Erin has tak- 
en her gift for softball off campus. 
She is involved with Fellowship of 
Christian Athletes, which aims to 
minister to area athletes through 
sports. Erin also coaches a traveling 
team during her summers. 

As an exercise science major, Erin 

hopes to eventually earn a mas- 
ter's degree and become a physical 
therapist. "I hope to use my physi- 
cal therapy skills specifically for 
young adult athletes in rehab," she 
says. Erin recognizes this area as an 
opportunity for ministry. 

"Athletes that come in for re- 
hab can be quite doubtful and de- 
pressed about their outcome." 

It's in those moments when Erin 
can use her education to serve 
them with her God-given gifts. "I 
am looking forward to encouraging 
and challenging them physically, 
emotionally and spiritually. I plan 
to give whomever comes to me an 
opportunity to have the hope and 
life in Jesus Christ."

Kristopher Meyer is a sophomore 
at Olivet Nazarene University who 
is majoring in elementary educa- 
tion. Though he did not originally 
go to Olivet, he transferred the sec- 
ond semester of his freshman year 
oecause he wanted to be closer to 
nis family in Momence and even- 
:ually decided to live at home and 
zommute to school. Not unlike 
most other students, Kristopher 
ceeps himself busy with school 
activities such as classes and help- 
ng out with the baseball team. 
What makes Kristopher more of 
i unique student is his commute 
:o school. Due to a recent medi- 
al problem, he lost most of his 
peripheral vision and therefore is 
10 longer allowed to drive in the 
itate of Illinois. For a while, he 
ust found rides to school, but his 
ove for bicycling led him to a new 
mbition. Kristopher Meyer rides a 
)ike that is specially designed for 

him to school every day. Through 
all kinds of weather, he rides his 
bike to school every day. The only 
thing that hinders him is severe 
ice and snow, but the cold does 
not bother him at all. He is a com- 
muting cyclist. When explaining 
why he cycles, Kristopher states: 

"Many people think I am crazy 
for what I am doing, since I could 
just sit back and hitch rides all 
the time. On the flip side, it's part 
of my nature to fight through the 
challenges, and I love being out- 
side! Cycling helps me clear my 
mind while absorbing myself into 
the sounds and scenery of moth- 
er nature. It has also given me 
a sense of independence, while 
supplying the earth with eco- 
friendly means of transportation." 

Kristopher's newfound passion 
and ambition has led him to be- 
come an extreme cyclist. He says 
that his longest day of riding in 

the summer was 74.3 miles and he 
has cycled 1610.3 miles since April 
2009. He hopes to begin doing 
cycle tours rather than just riding 
for a day and coming back home. 
He would travel with the bare ne- 
cessities of food, water, clothing, 
instruments for his bike, etc. His 
goal is to cycle down to Florida 
to visit some of his family. Kristo- 
pher has taken a challenge given 
to him and turned it into an inspir- 
ing gift for himself and the rest of 
us. He leaves us with the message: 
"Throughout life, there will be all 
kinds of doors/opportunities that 
will open for you. There are many 
times one door will lead to an- 
other door. And it's just a matter of 
how adventurous you are to walk 
through those doors to explore a 
new avenue and there is nothing 
wrong seeking an additional hand."

Often, you are rooted where 
you need to be, and not where you 
thought you wanted to be. Jordan 
Stiverson never wanted to attend 
Olivet, but with pressure from his 
parents, and a reluctance to at- 
tend a community college that 
meant living at home, he relented 
and showed up at his Chapman 
; dorm at the start of this school year. 

His decision to attend Olivet is part 
of a larger change God was making in 
Jordan's life. Most of his high school ca- 
reer was spent with what he calls "the 
wrong crowd." That crowd's behavior 
[soon crept into Jordan's life, leading 
[to shoplifting, drugs that eventually 
isent him to the hospital, and alcohol 
use where, at one point, he found 
nimself drinking "almost every day." 

"Everything I could be doing 
/vrong," Jordan says, "I was doing." 

But he was never without hope. A 
ly never stopped going to church. A 
joastor there pointed out to Jordan 
.hat despite his poor choices, God 

had saved his life more than once. 
Jordan needed to make a change. 

Leaving the old crowd behind, 
Jordan has found a very differ- 
ent group of friends. "They bring 
me up, not down," Jordan says. 

His RA, junior Matt Reynolds, has 
gotten to know a Jordan very dif- 
ferent from the one of just a few 
years ago. "He's really a pleasure to 
talk to," says Matt. "He's a great guy." 

Change is not always rapid, and 
Jordan admits that he still has work 
to do. Jordan's family lives in Kalama- 
zoo, Michigan, and includes a broth- 
er, a sister, "a wonderful dog, and an 
angry cat." Jordan has been working 
to improve his relationship with his 
family, a relationship he says was 
never what it could be. While living 
on his own has certainly made things 
easier, that's not to say that fam- 
ily isn't an important part of his life. 

His brother, Kenny Stiverson, at- 
tended Olivet last year and makes 
occasional trips to Olivet to visit 
with friends and meet up with 

his brother. "I hang out with him 
for at least half a day," Kenny says. 
"He and I have always been close." 

As for what Jordan plans to do 
after Olivet, he's not entirely sure. 
What he does know is that he will 
be rooted in something stronger 
than what he was four years ago. 

"I'm at Olivet because my parents 
forced me to, but I'm glad they did. 
I needed a college like this, because 
at this point in my life, I could have 
taken two paths." The first, Jordan is 
certain, would have left him dead or 
in prison. But the one he's chosen? 

"I love it at Olivet. I'm having tons 
of fun, learning a little bit, and matur- 
ing and learning how to be an adult." 

Like many freshmen, Jor- 
dan remains undecided about 
his major. But he is perfectly de- 
cided about his ultimate goal. 

"I'm just working toward be- 
ing the person He wants me to be, 
and fulfilling His purpose in my life."

After VP for Spiritual Life 
Evan Karg left the position to 
become student body presi- 
dent, sophomore Jordan Ber- 
gren volunteered to serve. 

Jordan calls his experience 
in the new job as a great one 
where God has been faithful 
to lead and teach him. But as 
with any time God teaches us, 
it certainly hasn't been easy. 

"In fact," Jordan says, "God 
has put me through one of 

the toughest times in my life." 
The extraordinary demands 
of the position, which over- 
sees 14 student ministries, 
combined with schoolworkand 
classes, left Jordan wondering 
where his passion for God went. 
"What I did not realize 
is that the first and second 
commandment are not just 
about good worship times or 
anointed times in the Word. 
It's about being faithful to 

this One who gave it all." 
Jordan's new understand- 
ing of what it means to 
serve has strengthened his 
faith and helped him in his 
role as VP of Spiritual Life. 
"We are weak and bro- 
ken people but somehow the 
little efforts of giving our- 
selves is what gives Him joy."

Students walking to Chal- 
fant Hall for chapel this year 
walked under a constant re- 
minder that things were chang- 
ing. Just across University Av- 
enue, a new chapel building 
was coming together, piece by 
piece, right before our eyes. 
As we prepared to move from 
our longtime chapel venue, 
we learned we would also 
find ourselves without 

Chap Daddy himself, Dr. Mi- 
chael Benson, who took on a 
new position at the school. 
What remains the same, how- 
ever, is chapel's role as a cen- 
tral piece of community life 
at Olivet, where students and 
faculty alike meet to worship 
and collectively hear what 
God would have to say to us.

Fall Revival is both extraor- 
dinary and routine at the 
same time. The same thing 
happens year after year, but 
at the same time, the overflow 
|of God's presence makes it a 
week that many will remember 
for the rest of their lives. This 
year's Fall Revival was led by 
Dee Kelly, pastor of a church 
at Point Loma Nazarene Uni- 
versity in San Diego. He led 
the campus through the Word 
of God as he talked about our 
individuality and why we must 
[step out of our comfort zones 
to be the hands and feet of 
Jesus. Sophomore Jessy Voss 

took an important lesson from 
the messages: "Each of us has 
an opportunity no one else 
does," she said. "And we have 
to take that." A different Ol- 
ivet choir was showcased 
during each evening service; 
Orpheus, Testament, Chrysa- 
lis, and Proclamation Gospel 
Choir each performed fun and 
passionate songs. A band led 
the congregation in song and 
many felt as Voss did when 
she stated, "It was very power- 
ful. You could definitely feel 
the presence of God there."

This year's Winter Revival 
took place Sunday, January 31st 
through Wednesday, February 
3, 2010. The special speaker 
was Dr. Mary Paul. A former Ol- 
ivet professor, she is now the 
vice president of spiritual de- 
velopment at Point Loma Naz- 
arene University. She, along 
with guest worship leader Rev- 
erend Marvin Jones, brought a 
message of revival and renew- 

al. Dr. Paul focused on the first 
few chapters of Revelations 
to bring her message that we 
are not to be afraid, no mat- 
ter what comes our way. This" 
time of revival is always a spe- 
cial time for students to refo- 
cus their priorities and efforts.

Though Olivet is a Naza- 
rene-affiliated school, there 
are many people on campus 
who are of different demoni- 
nations and attend different 
churches. The most recent sta- 
tistic suggests that the stu- 
dents on the Olivet campus 
vary in a range of more than 
30 different denominations. 

Many students have felt 
called to minister at churches 
throughout the area. Some 
participate in worship ministry, 
while others feel called to help 
care for children during the

is junior Remington Ramsey, ter in focusing on God alone, 
who plays in the worship band 

at Cornerstone Church. Hesays | Katie McCooey 

that he absolutely loves it there 
and that "Pastor Bob makes all 
the difference in the world." 

Shayna Marin is a sophomore 
at Olivet who regularly attends 
Kankakee First Church of the 
Nazarene. She says that she 
really likes the church because 
it has a small, community feel 
and the people are genuine.

Best Buddies is an off-campus 
ministry that allows Olivet stu- 
dents to step out of their comfort 
zones by building friendships with 
handicapped individuals in the 
community. Olivet students meet 
their buddies at Shapiro Develop- 
mental Center in Kankakee. Kaitlin 
Barker, who now leads Best Bud- 
dies, has been involved in the pro- 
gram since her sophomore year. 
"On my first day, I was a little ner- 
vous because I didn't know whatto 

expect. But every one of the bud- 
dies were so accepting and so will- 
ing to hang out," she remembers. 
Kaitlin sums up exactly what the 
program is about. "In the fall we 
put together a Christmas-themed 
ball with dinner and gifts for the 
buddies. One of the buddies asked 
me why we were doing this and 
why we were being so nice to 
him. My response was because we 
loved him and we wanted to show 
how much we appreciated them! 

His reply was with a big grin, 'Al 
right, alright, you can stop with 
the mushy stuff!' I will never for- 
get the impact he made on my life 
that night. We need to take what 
we've been given and give it away. 
We were meant to show others 
God's love because we might be 
the only chance they will ever get."

"Compassionate Ministries is 
ibout being the hands and feet 
or Jesus: having the heart and 
desire to reach out and help those 
n need," says Carrie Booth. Every 
/ear Compassionate Ministries 
•vorks with the community and 
hurches in the area to do many 
projects, big and small. Compas- 
ionate Ministries sponsored the 
!ROP walk as well as a canned food 
drive during Halloween. A group 
ilso went to a church in Chicago to 
:lean out the organ pipes and re- 
paint the organ room. In doing so, 
he students saved the church up 
o $50,000. Carrie's favorite mem- 

ory from this year was going to the 
church and getting a tour of the 
bell steeple. "When we reached 
the top, we rang the bells for all of 
the city to hear! It was pretty cool." 
There are many reasons one 
should get involved in this minis- 
try — friends, memories and travel 
opportunities. But Carrie believes 
students should get plugged into 
Compassionate Ministries "because 
it's a great way to give back to the 
community and share God's love 
with others. It's more than a club; 
it's a lifestyle we should continue."

The Disciplers make an effort 
to reach out to others by going to 
visit children in Hopkins Park, Illi- 
nois. Junior Juliana DiRienzo thinks 
that the best part of the ministry 
is the kids! She says the kids love 
to have them and really look up to 
them, and the group loves going 
to visit these kids every Monday 
and Wednesday night. Amanda 
Vanderpool says, "Disciplers is an 
important part of Olivet because it 
provides an opportunity to reach 
out and work with children who 

don't have many positive adult fig- 
ures in their lives." The members 
of this group carry deep roots and 
are sharing these blessings outside 
of Olivet, helping to plant seeds 
into the hearts of young children.

Evangels is a student-led 
group that visits Our Lady of Vic- 
tory nursing home each week to 
spend time with the residents. 
Junior Laura Messenger says the 
group is important to the campus 
community because it "helps the 
Dlivet students to rise to the chal- 
enge that Christ called us to of 
-eaching out to others." Accord- 

ing to Laura, though, the best 
part about being in the group is 
having the opportunity to spend 
time with the elderly people 
they visit and get to know them 
individually. The residents have 
many stories to tell and a wealth 
of information to offer. Laura 
says, "I love to hear about their 
lives and all that they have had 

the opportunity to experience!" 
She also says that the students 
who go visit the elderly are able 
to learn so much from them. She 
says, "They always remind me of 
what really matters in life. They 
nevertalkabout possesions. ..they 
share stories of their loved ones."

Lifesong is a praise and worship 
oand that performs on and off of 
campus. Three different Lifesong 
teams travel to various churches, 
Derforming and singing praise to 
God. The team leaders include 
lacob Schmidt (Team 1, Sunday 
Sest), Brad Morse (Team 2, Shards 
}f Glass) and Nicole Miller (Team 
3, By Grace). Each team has its 
own individual style and is made 
jp of students from every year. 

Crystal Brais, a senior on 
shards of Glass, says, "Everyone 
worships God in their own way. It 
s so cool to watch each person as 
hey worship their Creator." Crys- 

tal joined the team because she 
was offered a spot on it by her 
friends and she could not turn 
down such an amazing opportu- 
nityfor something she had always 
wanted to do. Though she did 
not have time to be on Lifesong 
before, she is glad for the expe- 
rience now and loves the fellow- 
ship with other students and God. 
Ethan Burch is a freshman at 
Olivet and was offered a place 
on Lifesong Team 1 after playing 
in the Spiritual Life Chapel. He 
agreed, thinking it would just be 
an added activity in his week, 
but he found that it was much 

more. Ethan says he has found 
that "these people are genuine- 
ly talented musicians who want 
to praise God with their mu- 
sic." He says he is glad he joined 
the group because he has ben- 
efited musically, socially and 
spiritually from participating.

MIA is one of the larger min- 
istry groups on campus, and 
each year the students who 
participate in Missions in Ac- 
tion travel to faraway desti- 
nations to do mission work. 
This year for Spring Break Ol- 
ivet students traveled to Mex- 
ico, Guyana, Los Angeles, and 
Hounduras. There were more 
than 20 people in each group 
and some countries will have 

multiple teams traveling to 
work there this summer. Bran- 
don Metzger traveled to Cabo 
San Lucas, Mexico, and was 
"extremely excited about the 
chance to meet and minister 
with people who are from a 
different culture." Even though 
his team worked in a school, 
Brandon says, "We are not go- 
ing there to teach people who 
know nothing; we are going 

more to learn how the love 
of God is shown in ministry 
we learn from them, and they 
get to teach us." Brandon be- 
lieves that the trips benefh 
not only those who live in the 
other countries but students 
themselves. "We get to see 
the reflection of God's face 
in a way that we have nevei 
been able to witness here.'

"Just put an orange suit 
on him." When one of the in- 
mates the students of the 
ministry group Mission Pos- 
sible meet with four times a 
week says something like this, 
the group members can know 
that their goal is being met. 
Co-leaders Maria Huyser and 
Annie Weaver, both juniors, 
travel with around 30 other 
students to local prisons to, 
as Maria says, build friend- 
ships with and encourage 
the inmates, who otherwise 
often have very few visitors. 

The group's end goal is 
to get the inmates to the 

point of being willing to lis- 
ten to the gospel message. 
Often, the students will 
pray with the inmates and 
also bring Bibles to them. 
Though the idea of visit- 
ing prisons is intimidating 
to many, the students in Mis- 
sion Possible have found it 
surprisingly easy to minister 
to the inmates. "I don't want 
to leave; they're my friends," 
says senior Leah Petrusich.

Olivetians for Life (OFL) is a 
student-led ministry that seeks 
to give alternatives to abor- 
tion and raise awareness for 
the millions of unborn children 
in the world. The leaders are 
Sarah Staal and Becka Spense. 

They hold fun events in order 
to get students involved and 
they try to make an impact and 
send a message of hope and 
help to the campus. Some of 
the activities they have done is 
volunteering and fundraising 
for the local pregnancy center, 
the Rock-for-Life, and Sanc- 
tity of Human Life week. The 
Rock-for-Life was to raise mon- 
ey for the pregnancy center 
with performances by Spoons 
for Forks and a local worship 
leader. There were also vol- 
unteers rocking names of the 
unborn children who never 
had a chance to be rocked. 

The members of the group 
are just as affected as those 
who they minister to. Tabitha 
Eckert is a junior who joined 
the group because she knows 
that abortion is a very difficult 
topic and wants to help others 
make the right decision. "One 
of the benefits of being a mem- 
ber of OFL is simply the small 
peace of conscience I get from 
knowing that while abortion 
continues, I'm taking action in 
one of the small ways I can."

Omega is Olivet's traveling 
drama ministry, composed of 
students who travel around 
the Olivet region in teams 
to share their talents with 
churches and youth groups. 

One Omega team leader is 
junior Stacey Skelton, a social 
work major. "I joined Omega 
because I loved acting and 
it seemed like a great way to 
get involved." She says her 
Omega team "is like a family. 
We share both the good times 

and the bad together." This, 
she says, brings them beyond 
the acting and allows them 
to know their team members 
in a deeper way. "Sometimes 
you will find friends that you 
never thought could exist." 
Sophomore Shelby VanBu- 
ren joined because she want- 
ed to do theater as a ministry, 
but says she never anticipated 
the bond she'd soon develop 
with her team. "They chal- 
lenge me every day to become 

a better person," she says. 
As a traveling ministry, Ome- 
ga members have the added re- 
sponsibility of representing to 
their audience not only Olivet, 
but Christ. "We are constantly 
laughing and having a good 
time, but the best thing about 
it is that our time spent togeth- 
er is always Christ-glorifying."

Party with Jesus allows students 
to take time out of the weeknight to 
join others in worshiping God; it is 
a powerful statement of how amaz- 
ing God's presence can be in a room 
of young hearts who long for Him. 
Since this ministry is student-led, the 
leaders, Jack Christensen and Jim 
Murray, take time to coordinate all 
of the services. According to Jack: 
"It takes a lot of work, but each Mon- 
day night makes it completely worth 
it. It's great to be a part of some- 
thing that God uses to strength- 
en and encourage the students." 

Many times it is a student who 
brings the message, which makes 
it all the more meaningful for the 
others who attend. Party with Je- 
sus definitely has a wonderful at- 
mosphere of love and fellowship.

Some people fight with a 
sword, some with a gun, some 
with the pen, others with... 
prayer? That's exactly what the 
Prayer Warriors do. The group, 
led by Luverta Reames and Sarah 
Di Monte, meets twice a week, 
on Monday and Thursday nights. 
They pray for fellow students, 
campus events, and things that 
happen around the globe, such 
as the earthquake in Haiti. Stu- 
dents pray aloud and in small 
groups for each other and also 
get to share answers to prayer. 
Luverta shares, "My favorite part 
about being in the ministry is 
just being able to hear others' 
answered prayers and listen- 
ing to how God is moving in 
their lives." Anywhere from 10 
to 20 students attend the meet- 
ings, but Luverta thinks that ev- 
ery student at Olivet should be 
there. "Everyone should be in- 
volved in this ministry because 
God loves to hear us when we 
come before Him and to an- 
swer our prayers and requests."

Save Our Streets, or SOS, "is 
not just a ministry to the home- 
less," says one of the group's 
leaders, Anson Workman. SOS 
has proven to be a ministry 
to the members themselves. 

"I have had the blessed op- 
portunity to do God's work ... by 
serving His people," Anson says. 

Anson and Brock Johnson, 
both juniors, lead the group in 
their ministries that focus on Chi- 
cago's homeless. In the fall, the 
group met weekly at a homeless 
shelter, where they shared a meal 
and "experienced Bible study 
like you have never seen before." 

The group has participated in 
service efforts that included assist- 
ing victims of flooding in nearby 
Watseka, and plans to join another 
Chicago ministry by distributing 
blankets to the homeless in Chicago.

Urban Children's Ministry is 
a group with a passion to work 
with young children. These 
children become known as lit- 
tle brothers and sisters to the 
Olivet students in the group. 

Tayler St Aubin, who co-leads 
the ministry with Jennifer Reir- 
son, says, "Urban Children's 
Ministry demonstrates educa- 
tion with a Christian purpose 
and gives us leadership oppor- 
tunities to show Christ's love 
to these children." Tayler says 
that the best part about the 
ministry is getting to know the 
children and connecting with 
hem on a personal level. The 
group is unique in the fact that 

the team reaches out to foster 
children from the community. 
These children come from all 
different backgrounds and, 
Tayler says, "We learn so much 
from them each week." She 
loves spending time with the 
kids and says, "The best part 
about UCM is the connections 
you make with these kids. It's 
such a good feeling when your 
buddy shows up and runs across 
the room to jump into your 
arms." The impact that the Ol- 
ivet students are able to make 
on these children is invaluable, 
but the children have also made 
quite an impact themselves.

One of Spiritual Life's major proj- 
ects is the ongoing chapter of Habi- 
tat for Humanity (HFH), which start- 
ed in the spring of 2009. Though 
it was originally a project for Men's 
Residential Life, presented by their 
president, Austin Bender, it soon 
turned into a project for the whole 
campus. When Austin took on the 
role of student body president, Amy 
Loeffler, a member of the team, 
took over leadership of this tem- 
porary project. Amy says it was her 
dream to make HFH a permanent 
campus ministry. Throughout the 
past year, she has done exactly that. 

In coordination with the admin- 
istrators on campus and the su- 
pervisors of the local HFH chapter, 
Amy has made it possible to have 
a running service club on campus 
that works directly with HFH. She 
states, "God has taught me many 

lessons through this experience 
and has touched my life as well. I 
am a personal testament to the 
fact that God qualifies the called, 
and not the other way around." 
Since this fall, HFH has built 
houses for three families in the 
Kankakee community, all of whom 
are extremely thankful. Amy speaks 
fondly of a woman who they built a 
house for and her relationship with 
God. She says HFH allows her to 
meet and connect with people who 
she would notgettotalkwith other- 
wise. Some of these people already 
have a relationship with God, and 
others are in need of spiritual help 
just as much as they need a house 
or other physical items. Either way, 
this ministry allows Olivet students 
to connect with people out in the 
community. It also allows the stu- 
dentstolearnfromothersand helps 

them appreciate what they have. 
This ministry has not only 
reached those who are benefitting 
from the houses, but also the com- 
munity around the houses. Many 
neighbors and people through- 
out the community have stopped 
by to ask what is going on. Some 
want to know how they can help or 
get involved. Even some children 
down the street from the houses 
ask about the project and help out 
the volunteers. This ministry has 
reached far beyond just the work- 
ers, the students and those who 
are being helped. It is a wonder- 
ful community and spiritual out- 
reach that will grow far beyond 
the walls of Olivet and into the 
lives of people of the community.

Those students who seize the 
hance to study abroad return with 
n extraordinary collection of ex- 
>eriences and, often, a new per- 
pective on their world. 

Senior Kate Rojek spent her fall 
emester in Cyprus and dutifully 
ecorded her adventures on a blog 
or family and friends. She's glad 
o have recorded the adventures 
ke she did; she now has what she 
alls "a novella of my adventures 

"I know that I wouldn't have 
)een able to remember all the de- 
ails that made my life there so ad- 
'enturesome and wonderful." 

Like many study abroad stu- 
ients, Kate was largely unfamiliar 
vith the local language. She and 

her roommates posted Greek vo- 
cabulary words around their apart- 
ment to familiarize themselves with 
the basics. 

But more than simple Greek, 
Kate says she learned, "The bound- 
aries I've created for myself are too 
small." She encourages her fellow 
students to explore the world out- 
side their own sphere. 

"People are people, no matter 
what language they speak or reli- 
gion they follow." 

With this global perspective, 
Kate has a renewed desire to use 
her communcations degree for "a 
career with a global impact ... con- 
necting the communication from 
all corners of this earth."

Her journalism degree in hand, 
)olphy Biswas will return to In- 
iia this spring to find out what 
he world has in store for her. 
iven with some provisional plans 
vorked out, Dolphy is not entirely 
ure what she means to do. But in 
i different sense, she knows ex- 
ictly what she is supposed to do. 

"I am waiting on more direc- 
ions and hoping that more doors 
vould open up," she says. Whatev- 
er doors open for her, she hopes 
hat she "would be able to do the 
vill of God through my life." 

"I am still leaning on God for 
he future." 

It's a lesson Dolphy has learned 
wer and over again. Originally a 
nass communications major, Dol- 
)hy found her calling in journal- 
sm following a guest lecture by a 
ournalism professor in her speech 
lass. She changed her major and 

hasn't looked back since. 

"The more I got into the pro- 
gram, the more I liked it," Dolphy 
says. Journalism proved to be 
a good fit for Dolphy, and she 
quickly became a section editor 
forThe GlimmerGlass. 

Dolphy felt an added desire to 
supplement her studies with a 
biblical studies minor, something 
that Olivet was particularly suited 
to provide. If nothing else, Dolphy 
believes that "it will add to my ex- 
perience of life and help me no 
matter what profession I am in." 

A lifelong Nazarene, Dolphy will 
likely start her career in the Naza- 
rene Church in India, but hopes to 
find work in journalism. For all her 
preparation, however, she expects 
some challenges in entering the 
Indian news business. 

According to Dolphy, the 
American emphasis on unbiased 

reporting is not as valued in India. 
"The news [in India] is definitely 
influenced by politics and the 
government in general. The news 
organizations aren't hardcore like 
in this country." 

Even with all changes and chal- 
lenges that await her, Dolphy can 
rely on the deep roots she's estab- 
lished here, both in her faith and 
in her friends. 

"Things weren't always smooth 
sailing," she admits, "but through 
every experience I feel I have 
grown ... closer to God. I am very 
thankful for the opportunity to 
be able to come to this country 
to have been given this chance to 
study at Olivet. This has been the 
best thing in my life."

The Associated Student Council 
is the largest organization on cam- 
pus and has some of the greatest 
responsibilities. In its lower-level 
Ludwig offices, you will always 
find a few members of the senior 
student leadership working hard 
at their assigned roles. 

In addition to the Executive 
Council, ASC governs each of the 
student-led groups on campus, 
which currently include 33 clubs 
and 15 ministries. 

Perhaps the most visible ASC 
presence on campus comes in 

the form of their popular annual 
events. These include the Block 
Party, Ollies Follies, the Candy 
Costume Fest, the Christmas Tree 
Lighting, Recess and the Winter 
Banquet, among others. 

While these might be the more 
widely recognized ASC roles, the 
Executive Council is also respon- 
sible for such varied roles as Spiri- 
tual Life, Men's and Women's Res- 
diential Life, the Aurora and the 
GlimmerGlass student paper. 

According to head of ASC and 
Student Body President Evan Karg, 

ASC "exists to serve the studer 
body, communicating studer 
needs to the necessary admini 
trators in order to improve life 
Olivet. ASC also strives to provic 
events and opportunities for sU 
dents to volunteer and serve nc 
only Olivet, but the community 

ASC members have and wil 
continue to do their best to ere 
ate a fun and God-centered atnru 
sphere at Olivet.

The job of the class council is not 
only supporting and assisting in ful- 
filling the basic needs of the class; it 
is responsible for adding some fun by 
putting on class events throughout 
the year. The freshman and sopho- 
more class councils put on particu- 
larly successful events this year. In 
October, the freshman class hosted a 
class gathering in the warming house 
called "Fuego de Freshman." This was 
a time when the freshman class could 
get to know one another over carv- 
ing pumpkins, pong shots into jack- 

o-lanterns, pie eating contests and a 
variety of other games. The evening 
ended with a time of worship and a 
short message from the class chap- 
lain. When asked how the event went, 
freshman chaplain Matt Kearney said, 
"It was a good start, and I'm excited to 
see what God is going to do with our 
class in the future." The sophomore 
class also put on an event around Hal- 
loween called "Sophomore Smash." 
This was a partyforthe entire class with 
a harvest/Halloween theme. Brandon 
Metzger, a member of the sophomore 

class council described the event as "al 
great blessing for those who attend I 
ed because it gave us an opportunity 
to not only meet new people, but also! 
grow closer to those we already knewN

Social Committee is responsible 
for the majority of campus com- 
munity activities, put on for and by 
the Olivet students. Their goal is to 
create fun events that break up the 
monotony of everyday classes and 
assignments. They are the only or- 
ganization on campus that is large 
enough to plan events for about 
600-800 students at a time. Social 
Committee's purpose is best sum- 
marized by Shannon Battershell, 

vice president of Social Life, who 
said: "College life can get really busy 
with all the academics, and we just 
want there to be a time each month 
when students can have a relaxing 
and fun time with their friends for 
little or no cost." 

Social Committee has organized 
many events this year such as: 01- 
lies Follies, Candy Costume Fest, 
RECESS, Second Semester Back-to- 
School Weekend, the Winter Ban- 

quet, and the TOMS Shoes Event 
These events all involved plenty o 
food, games, students, professors 
and lots of fun! The students realh 
appreciate the study breaks as wel 
as the great times of community 
provided for by this committee.

PublicityCouncil isa little-known, 
but crucial, part of life on campus. It 
is currently made up of 14 graph- 
ic design and marketing majors. 
The council advertises most of the 
school events set up by the Asso- 
ciated Student Council and other 
various clubs. Vice president of the 
council, Zac Pennington, takes the 
ead in designing most of the adver- 
tisements, but his council also works 
to design, print and distribute some 

of the event posters. Some of their 
major projects include making post- 
ers, videos, T-shirts, commercials, 
visual e-mails, calendars, postcards, 
and table tents for the cafeteria. 

This year, Publicity Council was 
responsible for events and designs 
such as the handbook, the fall se- 
mester calendar and all of the Ol- 
lies Follies advertisements. Jerry 
Scheller, chair of Publicity Council, 
says, "The world today is drawn to 

more visual images and the council 
is able to use their creative talents 
to connect the campus together 
through student events." This club 
works very hard to make sure that 
all campus events are advertised in 
order to reach the maximum stu- 
dent turnout.

The campus of Olivet would be 
a lot less exciting if Men's Residen- 
tial Life, or MRL, wasn't around to 
put on a wacky, hilarious event ev- 
ery so often. 

MRL, led by Junior Dallas Tharp, 
is responsible for Beard Month and 
the infamous Tiger Championship 
Wrestling tournament every year, 
as well as several other events. 

Sophomore Kyle Lowry, TCW 
announcer, loves being involved 
in MRL activities. He remembers, 

"I got involved with TCW freshman 
year as ringside announcer and it 
was really the first thing I got in- 
volved with at Olivet. TCW opened 
doors to a lot of friendships and 
really compelled me to want to 
get a lot more involved with other 
campus events." 

Yet another one of Kyle's favor- 
ite MRL events is Beard Month. 
Says Kyle, "It's a great excuse for 
guys like me who can't really pull 
off facial hair on an everyday ba- 

sis to show off their best impres 
sion of Chuck Norris or Gandalf the! 

So whether you want to watch 
students and professors square of 
against one another or try to grow 
an epic beard in the space of 3C 
days, MRL has the event for you.

man girls. It not only gives freshman 
girls someone who can help them 
navigate their way around Olivet; "It 

gives them someone to look up to," 
says Amanda. WRL also puts on RA 
appreciation events such as dinners 
and gift exchanges. No matter what 
time of the year it is, WRL is always 
up to something.

To many members of the stu- 
ent body the GlimmerGlass is 

mystery. Its presence is well 
nown on campus, yet not many 
now where it comes from or 
lat within the basement of Lud- 
/ig lies an office full of student 
orkers who bring forth the 
impus-wide publication. Each 
?ar a different staff of students 
orks together to deliver six is- 
jes a semester to the campus. 

Senior Melody Kennell, journal- 
m major, leads this year's staff, 

made up of ten other students 
who help make each publication 
possible. The students are pre- 
dominantly self-guided in their 
work with staff meetings held the 
Friday following each issue's pub- 
lication. This year, the newspaper 
took a different turn and is now 
available in online form as well. 
The GlimmerGlass delivers 
coverage on campus events, 
as well as providing feedback 
on local and world events, all 
from a student persepective.

The campus crew known as Resi-

'irgest administrative organiza- 
ions on campus. If your heater or

'ill make sure it gets fixed. Hav- 
lg roommate issues? Residential 
ife will help you handle it. Have to 
lake a trip to the hospital? Chanc-

ife will be right there with you. 
/hile most students think the job 
f Residential Life is to crack down 

on handbook violations, Rez Life 
would much rather be out having 
fun with the rest of us. "The most 
important thing we do is build re- 
lationships with students," says 
Donna McAllister, director of Resi- 
dential Life. "We are driven by a 
Godly passion to serve students 
through loving relationships. As we 
strive to imitate Christ, we model, 
mentor and motivate students to 
be Christlike in their world." To do 
this, Residential Life staff lead Bible 

studies, build relationships, eat and 
pray with students, and attend as 
many campus activities as possible. 
The ultimate goal, says Donna, is to 
help students see that Residential 
Life is there to help them succeed. 
So if your heater is working, thank 
someone from Residential Life.

one is invited to participate 
in their events. This year any-

attended the weekly meetings. 

Every year Biophilic meets 
with younger students in the 
community to teach them about 
biology. The club also organizes 
the Kankakee River Clean-Up.

Capitol Hill Gang is a club on cam-

cience majors and minors. It is an 
pportunity for them to grow and 
hallenge one another's ideas and 
noughts and also to grow in friend- 
hip. Member Sarah Shilvock says, 

have formed lasting friendships 
/ith people from a wide array of po- 
tical backgrounds, and I have also 
rown as a student by participating 
l the various events organized by 
apitol Hill Gang." It is a safe place 
Dr students to dig deeper into their 

beliefs and ideas and grow in them. 
The president of the club, Brett 
Michael Carmouche, says, "It of- 
fers a safe haven for pluralism and 
growth, but most importantly, it of- 
fers a place where all opinions are 
valid, and respected and where 
people, if actively engaged, will be- 
come even more passionate about 
their field and the great power that 
lies within the hands of the people."

Chemistry Club started so that 
chemistry majors could get together 
and talk about global and national 
issues related to their field of study. 
Though it is still in the development 
stage, the group has begun to meet 
and discuss what is going on in the 
world around them. They also get to- 
gether to try out new experimentsand 
have some fellowship in the group. 

One of the group member's, Erin 
Sebero, says the group's favorite activ- 
ity is to "get together with the chem- 

istry department and head over to 
PJ's in Manteno for some fun, relaxing 
time filled with ice cream, games and 
great people." An annual tradition that 
has started in the past two years is the 
construction of the periodic table of 
cookies. The group enjoys the fellow- 
ship and time they have together, as 
well as the educational experiences 
they have while meeting as a club.

The small but elite group 
of students involved in the 
Computer Club share one love. 
You guessed it: computers. While 
there are only 10 members, these 
students know how to have fun. 
They meet once a month, have 
student-led seminars. Afterward 
they go to Best Buffet, play video 
games, and exchange tech secrets. 

However, they aren't keeping all of 
the secrets to themselves: In the 
future they plan to help fellow 
students by holding a computer 
repair day during which students 
can bring their computers 
to the club for minor repairs. 
When the members of this club 
aren't working, they're playing. 
Matt Wallace, who has served as 

club treasurer and president anc 
has been involved in the club fo 
the past three years, particularly 
loves the end-of-semester parties

While the Criminal Justice Club 
5 mostly made up of criminal jus- 
ice majors, anyone can join. This 
'ears club consists of about thirty 
nembers, including officers. The 
najors get together and have the 
>pportunity to practice taking the 
)olice academy entrance exam, 
onduct mock police interviews, 
nd hear a special K-9 unit officer 
peak to them about his experi- 
ence working as a correctional of- 
icer. The group also plans trips to 

shooting range, so anyone who 
njoys firearms can practice their 

shooting skills. Movie nights are 
also a fun part of the mix as club 
members get together to watch 
movies and eat snacks. The group 
enjoys bonding together during 
these events. The fact that they 
have similar intresets and goals 
helps to create a bond between 
the members that they value and 
appreciate. Mike Mann, a junior 
criminal justice major and one of 
the club officers, says that the club 
has exciting plans and ideas for 
the future. The club is also looking 
forward to hosting and participat- 

ing in some community service 
events in the near future, as they 
see that this is an important aspect 
of promoting peace and well-be- 
ing in communities and will help 
many possible law enforcement 
officers in their pursuit of justice.

The name Diakonia comes 
from the Greek word for "ser- 
vice," making it a perfect name 
for Olivet's social work club. 
"Since we are focused on serv- 
ing our school, community and 
people in general, this is a per- 
fect name to fit our passions," 
says Lindsay Zavitz, member and 
former president of the group. 

The group of social work ma- 
jors meets at least once a month, 
having parties and planning 
events that will benefit people 

not only in our community but 
around the globe. Diakonia has 
been active in raising aid for 
the Veritas project in Romania, 
sending Band-aids and Neo- 
sporin to those who need it. 
On the local level, Diakonia 
organizes the Trick or Treat for 
Necessities, which allows them 
to donate items to local agencies 
such as the Pregnancy Resource 
Center and Harbor House. Every 
Christmas they hold a Christmas 
party for more than 75 foster 

children. "My favorite memorie; 
almost always occur at the Kid 
Hope United Christmas party, 
says Lindsay. "Whether it's Olivei 
alumni Eric Hoots coming bad 
to be Santa for the kids or seeinc 
kids get beards or Christmas tree 
painted on their faces at the face 
painting station. There are toe 
many fun memories to pick one!

The Green Room gets its name 
from the backstage room that 
nearly every auditorium or stage 
has for actors when they aren't on- 
stage. While the room historically 
is painted green, Olivet does not 
have a "green room" perse. Howev- 
er, the school does have a theatre 
club with a pretty awesome name. 

This year there are 56 mem- 
bers of The Green Room, and the 
group sponsors six events a year. 
These include Broadway Revue, 
the spring play, and a 24 HourThe- 

atre event in which students have 
24 hours to write, memorize and 
direct a one-act play. This is Presi- 
dent Zarah Miller's favorite event. 
She thinks it is "intensely awe- 
some trying to get everything to- 
gether... It's always really cool to 
see when it's all done and finished 
and the groups put on their show." 
Despite the common percep- 
tion, you don't have to be an out- 
going actor to be a part of the club. 
Students can perform, work back- 
stage, create sets, or do costum- 

ing and makeup. Exclaims Zarah 
"There are a ton of different vari- 
eties of ways students can be in 
volved with Green Room, which i: 
why I think it's such a cool group!

Three years ago, three freshman 
iris saw a need on campus and 
iecided to do something about 
:. Kelsey Moreau, Kate Kraus, 
nd Annie Lowry founded Going 
ireen, and it's still going strong, 
mnie mentions that they "were 
litially only concerned about re- 
ycling in the dorms, but eventu- 
lly saw the need for changes in 
•ther parts of the campus as well." 

In the past, this club has helped 
tudents "Weigh the Waste" of 

the food they throw away in the 
cafeteria and has demonstrated 
how much food students take by 
having a "Trayless Day." This year, 
the focus is on Red Room waste. 
"Our goal is to sell reusable Red 
Room bags that students can use 
instead of getting a new plas- 
tic one every time," says Annie. 
The club is currently trying to 
implement more recycling bins 
around campus and raise student 
awareness about it. So next time 

you start to throw away your alu- 
minum soda can, remember: Go- 
ing Green wants you to recycle.

Brett Michael Carmouche, 
president of the Olivet chapter 
of International Justice Mission, 
explains IJM's purpose rather suc- 

"We are not simply sayers of 
the Word, but also doers." 

International Justice Mission 
is a Christian human rights orga- 
nization that "secures justice for 
victims of slavery, sexual exploi- 
tation and other forms of violent 

oppression." Faculty adviser Dr. 
David VanHeemst says that IJM 
goes beyond simply reporting 
human rights abuses, and em- 
ploys lawyers and investigators to 
try to resolve the problems they 

While ONU chapter members 
might not be working in one of 
IJM's 14 field offices around the 
world, the "macro level," as Brett 
calls it, they "seek to impact ... on 

the micro level by raising fund 
which will be sent to [IJM] head 
quarters in Washington, D.C." 

This is all for the purpose o 
being "doers of the Word," whicl 
commands us to "Seek justice 
rescue the oppressed, defend th< 
orphan, plead for the widow" (Isa 
iah 1:17).

excellence. As members, students 
who demonstrate a committment 
to continued achievement in their 
discipline are routinely recognized 
for it. 

An equally important but per- 
haps less tangible foundation of 
Kappa Delta Pi is duty. Through 
regular meetings and special 
events - including guest speakers 
from the education field - Kappa 
Delta Pi members are made aware 
of the incredible duty that each 

educator has to the society whose 
children he or she will educate. 

Lastly, Kappa Delta Pi recogniz- 
es the power that every educator 
has to affect the lives of his or her 

Kappa Delta Pi secretary Latrice

is "the driving force behind the 
positive differences we will make 
in the lives of the students we will

Membership in Kappa Omicron 
Nu, the Family and Consumer Sci- 
ence honor society, means quite a 
few things. For one, says Chapter 
Vice President Lisa Jackson, ifmeans 
you are an above average student 
with much leadership potential ... 
it shows you are serious about your 
work." Jessica Harris, the chapter 
president, points out that member- 
ship means something even after 
school: it's a "nationwide network of 

professionals and prospective em- 
ployers," offering "great networking 
potential and career opportunities." 

According to the society's web- 
site, Kappa Omicron Nu "places an 
emphasis on academic excellence 
as well as personal values and a con- 
cern for fellow humans." 

Members at Olivet pursue these 
ideals in a variety of ways. Every 
year, members work to better pro- 
mote themselves professionally 

through a portfolio workshop. The] 
also participate in a service projec 
in the community. Of course, it's nc 
all work; according to Lisa and Jesl 
sica, Kappa Omicron Nu member 
come from several different major 
and like to get to know one anothe 
through a fun group activity ever 
now and then.

Theta Beta is the Olivet chapter of 
ie national communications honor 
ociety, Lambda Pi Eta. 

According to member and senior 
ebecca Vander Naald, Theta Beta 
xists to "promote the communi- 
ation field on campus," and to en- 
ourage "networking between com- 
lunication majors and professors." 

That might not sound like a riot 
tfirst, but Rebecca explains that it's 
dually a lot of fun. One of the so- 
iety's most popular events is Octo- 
er's "Commies in Costume," which 
ives members a chance to mingle 

with students and professors in 
the communication department, 
dressed in all manner of lightheart- 
ed disguise. 

In addition to the October event, 
Rebecca says, members this year 
had the special opportunity to at- 
tend 95th annual convention of the 
National Communication Associa- 
tion, which happened to be meet- 
ing in Chicago. 

"This event allows members of 
Lambda Pi Eta to interact with pro- 
fessionals and encourages continu- 
ing education," Rebecca explains. 

In addition to these gatherings, 
members also participate in two 
service projects per year. In the fall, 
Lambda Pi Eta members built rela- 
tionships with residents at Bickford 
of Bourbonnais, a senior living com- 
munity. The second service project 
usually comes in the spring as an 
addition to Comm Week, a week 
Rachel says is "dedicated to appreci- 
ating our discipline" through show- 
cases, guest speakers and an alumni

Lately, March 14 has been falling 
on a weekend. Now, you might think 
being unable to celebrate Pi Day (Get 
it? 3/14?) on a weekday would put a 
damper on the Math Club's schedule. 
But don't tell that to faculty adviser Dr. 
Dale Hathaway. 

In February, Dr. Hathaway led mem- 
bers in constructing "an extremely in- 
teresting mathematical origami model 
called "5 Intersecting Tetrahedrons,"and 
in late March led them on a Mathemati- 
cal Photo Scavenger Hunt. 

Most club members come from the 

Department of Mathematics, but ; 
that is required for participation is a lo\ 
for math. 

"We usually have non-math m 
jors at just about every event," says 
Hathaway. This includes the popul 
Mathematical Murder Mystery, in whi< 
Dr. Stephen Brown "killed off" the mo 
recent addition to the staff, Dr. Just 
Brown. The reason, according to I 
Hathaway: "He did not like having 
share the name Dr. Brown."

The Church of the Nazarene has an 
icredibly diverse world congregation, 

rth a presence in more than 1 50 world 
reas. It makes sense, then, that Olivet 
udents embrace this variety of cul- 
: res through its own Multi-Ethnic Rela- 
Club President Jackie Owens ex- 

ains that MERC exists to "help people 
lalize that although we are all differ- 

it in some way, whether that be cul- 
I rally, physically, etc., when we come 

together in Christ we can get much ac- 

MERC celebrates campus diversity 
throughout the year through special 
events and activities. "Christmas Expres- 
sions," a concert in Common Grounds, 
featured members sharing their music, 
poetry and food. In February, MERC 
members created a display com- 
memorating Black History Month for 
Benner Library. Toward the end of the 
year, MERC puts on what it calls "Diver- 

sity Week," which culminates in a show 
called "ONU's Got Talent" and a Gospel 
Choir concert. 

Events like these fulfill MERC's mis- 
sion of celebrating the diversity within 
Olivet's student body. Senior Dolphy 
Biswas, a three-year member, says that 
MERC "has definitely enriched me as a 
person and helped me to know more 
about the world."

Olivet's chapter of MENCThe Na- 
tional Association for Music Educa- 
tion, is"a professional clubfor music 
education majors," explains MENC 
council member Angela Reedy. The 
council of four members, which in- 
cludes Angela, Brianna Robins, Paul 
Drace and Diana Rankin, leads the 
club of about 40 students who have 
a desire to someday share music 
with students of their own. 

As a club, these students attend 

the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, an 
international band and orchestra 
conference, along with hosting mu- 
sic education lectures with guest 
speakers at Olivet. 

This year, MENC members 
helped visiting high school and 
middle school students with the 
Illinois Music Educators Associa- 
tion (IMEA) Prep Day. According 
to Angela, these Olivetians spent 
the day practicing with the young 

musicians, helping them prepar 
for their auditions the next day t 
playing or singing the accompan; 
ing music.

Mu Kappa is a campus club for 
iternational students. Though 
his club was originally a branch 
<f the Multi-Ethnic Relations Club, 
: has become so popular that it is 
ow a club of its own. This club is 

way for students who grew up 
utside of the United States to get 
ogether and fellowship with one 
nother. It also allows them to cel- 
brate and understand American 
ulture in their own unique way. 

Rebecca Schnurr is the adviser for 
this club and talks to the members at 
meetings to help them understand 
and adapt to the culture shock as 
best as possible. Many of the mem- 
bers look up to her and have a bet- 
ter experience at Olivet because 
of this fellowship with others who 
grew up in similar circumstances. 

President Dolphy Biswas says, 
"These people have helped me to 
understand this culture better and 

be able to live through those times 
of homesickness and loneliness." 
Many students appreci- 

ate this wonderful organiza- 
tion and are thankful for the 
safety and help it provides.

The National Science Teachers As- 
sociation is an organization that has 
chapters all over the United States. 
The Olivet chapter is for science and 
elementary education majors who 
are interested in researching and 
teaching the subject of modern sci- 
ence. Their main event every year is 
running a "Science Circus." The Sci- 
ence Circus helps organize lesson 
plans for current science teachers, 

scout groups, and any other educa- 
tional organization that would like to 
have a science lesson taught. Some- 
times members will travel to class- 
rooms to give presentations to the 
students. It is also popular for schools 
to bring students to the planetarium 
for a fun way to meet the science 
standards for the study of astronomy. 
This benefits the Olivet members 
of the group just as much as it benefits 

the students who are being taugh 
University students get teaching e: 
perience from this group as well

Nursing Students in Action (NSA) 
i a club for all students participating 
1 the Olivet nursing program. There 
re four levels to the nursing program 
nd each level has two representa- 
ives who contribute to and lead the 
liscussion at group meetings once 
month. There are also five execu- 
ive council members for NSA, often 
jeniors, who head the organization 
ind work together to make sure that 
III activities and events are accom- 

plished. Events planned by NSA in- 
clude the fall and spring blood drives 
and holding fundraisers to purchase 
supplies for the Biannual Health Fair, 
which is a class project for the seniors. 
NSA raises money through cloth- 
ing drives every year and often sends 
clothes with a member of an MIA 
team. This year, NSA has teamed up 
with SIFE to help raise money for the 
Haiti Water Project. Close to $200 
dollars has been raised by NSA to do- 

nate to the cause. According to the 
president of NSA, Mallory Studniarz, 
"This club is a way to represent the 
nursing body in a uniform manner to 
the nursing faculty, and it also helps 
the juniors and seniors in the nurs- 
ing program to become more like 
a family." Many of the members en- 
joy getting away from their rigorous 
classes for awhile and also appreciate 
the chance to do community service.

The Olivet Geological Society 
is a great club for anyone who 
loves the environment and is 
interested in past and current 
geological studies. In addition 
to discussing today's environ- 
mental and geological findings, 
the club also hosts a number 
of activities for the Olivet stu- 
dents. A common activity of the 
group is to host camping trips 
to sites of geologic interests for 

members. The club also par- 
ticipates in the activity of "geo- 
catching," which is like a scaven- 
ger hunt using GPS technology. 
Members of this club love 
these activities and events. The 
group also visits the Field Mu- 
seum every year and frequent- 
ly holds movie nights in the 
planetarium. The president of 
the Geological Society, Jamie 
Fearon, says that he "loves be- 

ing a part of OGS because it is ; 
wonderful opportunity to spen< 
time with people with sim 
lar interests and to spend tim^ 
outdoors." Members agree tha 
this a great club in which to hi 
involved and meet new people

Phi Alpha Theta is the histori- 
:al honors society and is a club 
or history majors and minors on 
ampus. The club usually gets to- 
jether to discuss current historical 
lappenings as well as for fun and 
ellowship. The members benefit 
rom each other's knowledge in 
he subject of history and in cur- 
ent events. Cara Sunberg, a ju- 
lior, says that she enjoys Phi Alpha 
"heta because it is an "opportunity 
o converse with others about his- 
ory and the topics therein that I 

find interesting." This club also 
benefits the members since it is 
an honors society and a certain 
GPA must be maintained for ini- 
tiation and continued member- 
ship to the organization. 

The club usually has a speaker 
come in every spring to talk to the 
students about history. This year,

character development at Temple- 
ton Foundation, spoke with the 
members of the honors society.

The ONU Proclamation Gospel 
Choir is a student-led music group 
that expresses their love and praise to 
God through passionate and emphat- 
ic songs. This group has grown in past 
years from a few students to about 
50 members. Students enjoy hearing 
the Gospel Choir sing at concerts, re- 
vivals, and in chapel throughout the 
year. Proclamation has their own con- 
cert, which is separate from the other 

choirs. In addition to this, the choir 
tours various churches on the week- 
ends, bringing their love and passion 
to others outside of the Olivet world. 
The members enjoy the sing- 
ing just as much as those who love 
to listen to their voices. Michelle

she joined the group because it is an 
"honor to be a part of a group of psy- 
chology students who will eventually 
make a difference through research, 
counseling and clinical avenues." Court- 
ney is currently the secretary of the 
I group and says that the club has grown 
i and has made steps in focusing on 
the research side of psychology rather 
than just a general psychology group. 

Psi Chi has been influential on Ol- 

ivet's campus, as they have offered 
the opportunity for students to listen 
to professors' research and then for 
the students to present their own re- 
search projects. These research proj- 
ects are invaluable to any student. 
Courtney says that the club has en- 
couraged her in her own research proj- 
ect and says, "The new direction of Psi 
Chi is exciting and it is helping students 
of psychology become more involved."

group is not only helpful in the 
community, but also inspiring to 
the members of the group. She 
says, "Having a professor who is 
such an inspiring teacher makes 
you want to be as inspiring." 
President Brittany Scruggs

The Student Dietetic Association 
at Olivet is made up of dietetic majors 
who are focused on eating right and 
helping raise awareness on this issue. 
Sophomore Martha Harrouff says, "It 
is encouraging to be with others who 
have the same goals as myself, plus 
we do many fun activities together." 

The SDA has hosted several events 
throughout the years. This past De- 
cember the group hosted a cookie 
baking fundraiser for professors and 
staff. The group has been involved 
with hosting a cooking class for Na- 
tional Nutrition Month. The group 
also volunteered at Feed My Starv- 
ing Children in Aurora, Illinois. They 
are interested in community events 
and raising awareness about dietet- 

ics. They feel strongly that these is- 
sues need to be publicized and that 
more people should get involved. 

Martha says that it is important to 
note that it is never too early to get 
involved. She says, "SDA has helped 
shape me by showing me the ways 
that I can be involved in dietetics even 
as a student."The group enjoys work- 
ing and being together, and Martha 
says that it is nice to have a strong 
group whom she can "receive encour- 
agement from." She says that being 
a part of the group has taught her 
leadership skills and responsibility. 

Martha says that she hopes more

The Student Union for the FACS

Meyers says that apart from being 
Ible to get to know other people 
p her major, "SUFACS has given me 
n area to get involved on campus." 
Each fall SUFACS does differ- 
ent community projects, including 
Lorking in nursing homes and the 
alvation Army. The group's theme 

is, "All for one and one for all." Brandi 
says, "This statement recognizes that 
while we all have different talents 
and gifts, our purpose is to use them 
for One purpose, to glorify God." She 
says that as a student she feels that 
the professors of the FACS depart- 
ment really embody this phrase 
and "are great role models and en- 
couragers not only in the area of 
school work but in our faith as well." 
SUFACS is responsible for putting 

on the spring fashion show every 
year. They get models from every 
class to participate in the event. This 
year's show focused on attire from 
popular movies. It included every- 
thing from"Casablanca"to"The Note- 
book." It is their main fundraiser and 
so much fun for the rest of campus!

According to Mark Wright, a mem- 
ber of 7th Reel's five-person decision- 
making council, members join the 
group simply"because we love movies!" 
Fellow council member Nicole Bren- 
nan elaborated on Wright's outburst, 
explaining that the group grew out of 
the members' "passion for filmmaking." 
7th Reel, she explains, is "not just about 
movies, but the actual making of film." 

Membership in 7th Reel is cer- 
tainly not limited to film majors. Ni- 
cole herself is a communication ma- 
jor with a concentration in radio. The 

club boasts 75 members and hopes 
to expand with even more events 
than are on their current schedule. 

Right now, the club aims to show 
a movie every month, be it a special 
pre-release or a film classic, gener- 
ally themed to the particular month. 
October, for example, featured Al- 
fred Hitchock's Psycho and December 
was, naturally, Miracle on 34th Street. 

7th Reel President Matthew Ozment, 
senior, explains the club's growing pop- 
ularity, saying that outside the club, 
"There is no real outlet to watch these 

films as a large group and talk about ii 
With the wide appeal of movies an 
the average college student's desir 
to exchange their world of textbook 
and tests for something more exci 
ing, 7th Reel has exactly what Olive 
students need after a busy montl

Members of Olivet's chapter of 
gma Tau Delta, the International 
; nglish Honor Society, regularly 
eal with a lot of good literature. But 
i a tradition begun last year, these 
rerature lovers stop to remember 
ie old school - elementary school. 

In celebration of the National Day 
f Writing, Sigma Tau Delta hosted 
ie Second Annual Dr. Seuss Cel- 
bration, which saw professors and 
:udents dressed in their own goofy 
iterpretations of Seuss'memorable 
laracters. Dr. Rebecca Belcher, the 

adviser for the Dr. Seuss event, came 
dressed in her own interpretation 
of author Judith Viorst's Alexander 
and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, 
Very Bad Day, which became an in- 
stant hit for those who attended. 

Community members, many of 
them children, joined in the fun 
held at College Church as they en- 
joyed some baked treats and lis- 
tened as lively professors shared 
a few of Seuss' classic stories. 

Keitha Wickey, a member of Sig- 
ma Tau Delta, explained that the 

purpose of the event "was to reach 
out to children in the community 
and to Olivet students and remind 
everyone about the joy of reading."

Haiti water project 

First Corinthians 12:4-6 reads, 
There are different kinds of gifts, 
>ut the same Spirit. There are dif- 
erent kinds of service, but the 
ame Lord. There are different 
inds of working, but the same 
iod works all of them in all men." 

Then-juniors Beth Hiatt and 
/like Hall returned from a mis- 
ion trip in Haiti last year with 
he realization that, with some 
lelp from some "different kinds 
»f working," they could multiply 
he work they had just completed. 

In cooperation with Nazarene 
Compassionate Ministries, their 
nissions team had installed a well 
I Haiti, where the need for clean 
vater is especially desperate. Half 
tf the country lacks access to clean 
vater, making its population espe- 
ially vulnerable to water-borne 
Inesses. A single well can provide 
lean water to about 2,000 people. 

Rather than leaving their ef- 
ort at one well, Beth and Mike 
pproached the campus busi- 
less organization, SIFE, with a 
iroposal to raise funds to pay for 

a new well before the Missions 
In Action chapel in the spring. 

SIFE members Andrew Clausen 
and Rachel Hooverdecided to head 
up the project, using the business 
group's status and resources to both 
raise funds and promote the effort. 

Lynda Allen, an associate pro- 
fessor of business and marketing, 
is the faculty sponsor for the ef- 
fort. Professor Allen points out that 
the wells "are installed on church 
grounds so that people who are 
blessed to finally have clean wa- 
ter in their community can also 
be blessed by the outreach of 
these churches and the Gospel!" 
These wells provide the water of 
life in every sense of the term. 

Andrew and Rachel have already 
met great success in fundraising 
for the project. At the Missions Fair 
early in the fall semester, the group 
raised $1,200 in a single day. By the 
end of the semester, the group had 
brought the funds up to $2,000. 

Rachel explains that a well can 
cost between $2,500 and $5,000, 
"depending on how extensive the 

job is and if there are pipes nearby 
or if it is a completely remote area." 

Of course, the task of bring- 
ing help to Haiti was complicated 
early in the spring semester fol- 
lowing the massive earthquakes 
that devastated the island. Un- 
fazed, members of the project 
approached the student body 
with a renewed call for funds, re- 
directing some of their efforts 
to more immediate relief needs. 

Still, the original mission to 
bring more permanent water 
sources to Haiti remains. With the 
extraordinary potential for sav- 
ing lives and sharing the Gospel 
at the same time, Rachel calls the 
opportunity for service in Haiti 
"definitely a win-win situation." 

In Olivet's effort to bring Christ's 
living water to Haiti, there are two 
very different kinds of service, 
but, as the author of First Corin- 
thians reminds us, "the same Lord."

Everything really is new for All 
Things New, an Olivet ministry band 
with new members and a new name. 
The group was formerly known as 
Zion's Wake, but the band members 
decided it was time for a change. The 
name comes from Revelation 22:5: 
"He who was seated on the throne 
said I am making everything new!" 
All Things New plays music through- 
out the school year at churches and 
retreats. Over summer, they focus on 
teens and play at camps. Says Har- 
rison Agan of the group, "Our goal 
for our ministry is both to tell people 

about Olivet and to lead people intcj 
the presence of God. More specifi 
cally, through our music we want tc 
draw people to Christ." Of course, tha 
doesn't mean the group doesn't knov\ 
how to have fun. They had a memo 
rable experience at the first camr. 
they played at this summer. Harrisor 
remembered, "The camp had a dres: 
up night and the guys from the banc 
decided to dress up as nerds. We a' 
got into character and played th( 
song MMMBop by Hanson dressed up 
in our nerd outfits."

"Before Tomorrow is about going

nanager and sound guy Tyler Hull ex- 
ilains. When asked his favorite place 
o travel, Hull excitedly describes 
he town of Olivet, Illinois, the place 
\/here our original Olivet College 
itarted and that holds a revival for 

the youth every year. "It's a small con- 
gregation," Hull explains, "and even 
when they hold the revival there are 
only 20-25 youth, but it's such a big 
deal for our group to come because it 
gives these kids a chance to hear this 
worship music that we so often take 
for granted."

The Chrysalis Women's choir has al- 
ways been a staple of the Olivet music 
department. Being one of four choirs 
known to the University, they are the 
only choir made up completely of 
women. The choir faced a change this 
year, with the addition of a Y chromo- 
some to their all-female choir. Their 
previous director, Prof. Martha Dal- 
ton, stepped down and Dr. Jeff Bell 
took the reins as director. He definite- 
ly faced a new challenge being the 
only man in the room, but it's a situ- 
ation he's no stranger to. He lives in a 
household of all women, with his wife 
and two daughters; even their dog is 
a girl; apparently Dr. Bell has adjusted 
well to the change. The choir is led by 
a small group of officers. President 
Christen Wilson, a senior, is in her sec- 
ond year as president and noted that 
the choir has definitely undergone 
some changes. The choir, which is 

made up of 46 women, is relatively 
young this year. Only nine are return 
ing choir members, as opposed to the 
previous year where nearly half of the 
members were veterans of the group 
This year, Chrysalis performed in cha 
pel, which was their first chapel ap 
pearance in the last four years, notec 
Wilson. The choir is definitely makinc 
their presence known on campus. "We 
are beginning to get more involvec 
on campus, which is something tha 
has been evolving over the years anc 
I hope that we will continue to be 
come more and more involved witr 
campus events," Christen Wilson com 
mented. Chrysalis is more than just i 
choir though; Wilson states, "For us, 
is a community of friends who share 
struggles and laughter."

Students have undoubtedly come 
across the Concert Band before, 
.whether in chapel or one of the band's 
annual performances in Sounds of 
the Season and Band Winter Show- 
case. Many of the student musicians 
nvolved are members of other en- 
sembles, with some transitioning 
Tom playing with the Marching Band, 
which performed in the fall. 

While students may have seen 
the Concert Band's performances on 
campus, few have had the pleasure of 
enjoying our Concert Band when they 
are on tour. Students who have had 

the opportunity to attend a weekend 
tour with the band know that it is just 
as much fun for them to perform as it 
is for the audience to enjoy them in a 
familiar church setting. Senior Amy 
Loeffler, a trumpet player, says she 
loves "praising God with others who 
share my passion for music." On tour, 
students get to do both as they make 
music and spend time fellowship- 
ping together and with the people 
who host them in their homes for the 
night, who are often themselves Ol- 
ivet alumni.

The Concert Singers may be one of 
the smaller singing groups on cam- 
pus, but don't let that fool you. This 
group of 15 individuals, led by Dr. 
Neal Woodruff, knows how to rock 
the house. Their main focus is Olivet 
events, and they perform at different 
functions over the course of each se- 
mester. Jonathan Mikhail, a member 
of the group, says that he loves "just 
getting together and practicing and 
having fun hanging out together. We 
are a real family. We are all very close." 

Merrick Robison agrees, saying 
that the size of the choir"makes more 
of an intimate group." With this closej 
ness, the Concert Singers aren't afrai 
to take risks. Merrick enjoys the song 
they sing because they allow for vo 
cal variety. What does this variet 
include? Perhaps Merrick whinnyin 
like a horse at the end of a perfor 
mance of "Sleigh Ride" for their"Song 
of Americana" concert counts.

"I love the way the bells sound," 
she says. 

Like any instrument, the decep- 
tively simple handbells come with 
their own set of challenges. In addi- 
tion to keeping everyone together, 
says Cynthia, the musicians must en- 
sure that they are assigned bells they 
can play at the same time.

The Jazz Band, one of the smaller 
groups within the music department, 
remains a popular component of 
major music department events like 
Sounds of the Season. In addition to 
departmental performances, the Jazz 
Band gets to shine on its own by play- 
ing for special chapel services and 
community events. One such event 
is the annual Candy Costume Fest. 
Costumed guests and musicians alike 
were able to enjoy live popular jazz 
music with the occasional spirited 
twist for the event. 

Having just as much fun as the at- 
tendees, Jazz Band members dressed 

in costumes for the occasion ar 
had the chance to play tunes outsic 
of their usual repertoire, includin 
among others, "The Ghostbuste 
Theme" and "Monster Mash." With tr 
energetic atmosphere that live mus 
can create, it's not surprising that Ja; 
Band members so enjoy their ensen 
ble, despite the significant time cor 
mitment. According to Ian Matthei 
a sophomore trombone player, "Ja; 
Band allows me to explore my love f 
music with others who share my e 
thusiasm for jazz."

Improv jazz is one of the tough- 
est and most rewarding styles of mu- 
;ic to play, but some students at Ol- 
vet have the skill mastered. The Jazz 
lombo group was created last year 
)y Professor Fred Franken and several 
azz Band students who decided they 
vanted to focus less on ensemble 
claying and more on the improv side 
)f their music. This requires a lot of ex- 
)erimentation.The musicians have to 
earn each others' styles so that even 
vhen someone decides to do some- 

thing on the fly, everyone knows how 
to follow. Patrick Wright, a trumpet 
player, says that "to stay together, we 
typically just make eye contact with 
someone else. We have a really good 
understanding of how we each inter- 
pret music and can often communi- 
cate our ideas without saying a word." 
According to Patrick Cole, the group 
plays classic rock, latin, samba, swing, 
slow jazz, as well as any kind of blues.

Clad in their regal purple and gold, the Marching 
Band showcases their performance skills at every 
home football game. But their spectacular showing 
doesn't come without some hard work. The band 
rehearses every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for 
two hours. Perhaps the greatest show of their dedi- 
cation is this: Every marching band memberalsohas 
to give up the Saturday morning sleep-in privileges 
most college students enjoy - marching band is out 

rehearsing before every football game by 9 a.m. 

Even so, Rae Marie Donaldson, a sophomo 
trumpet player, loves being in the band. "We get 
spend a bunch of time with people who all love tr 
same thing. And everyone has to give something 
order to make it work."

Orpheus, Olivet's mixed choir, is known for it! 

Orpheus, Olivet's mixed choir, is known for its 
hrilling and expert renditions of acapella songs. 

With such talent, one would think that all Or- 
)heus singers are music majors, but that isn't neces- 
arily true. "Most of us are in Orpheus because we 
jst love to sing and glorify God with music," says ju- 
lior Brad Sytsma, two-year member of Orpheus. 
\ccording to him, being in Orpheus "isn't some- 
hing you can describe easily. We're like a family." 

And like all families, this one likes to goof off 

a little. Brad reminisces, "One of my favorite Or- 
pheus memories is performing Men in Robes in 
this year's variety show and hearing the insane re- 
sponse from the audience as we did the can-can line." 
Speaking of robes, if you are in Orpheus, you'd bet- 
ter know which robe is yours. Everyone wears the 
same robe every time, and, Brad jokes, "if you take 
someone else's, you'd better be ready for a fistfight."

While this group of dedicated per-

lot in the five years since their incep- 
tion. They have performed with Testa- 
ment, Chrysalis, the Handbell Choir, 
Orchestra and Concert Band. This 
year the group travelled to St. Louis to 
perform for the Illinois Day of Percus- 
sion. What kind of music does a band 
of percussionists play? Mike Zaring, 
who has been playing in the Percus- 
sion Combo for three years, notes 
that when it comes to instruments, 

"Sometimes a piece will call for cor 
ventional instruments like toms an 
snare drums, but I have also been 
pieces that call for different lengtl 
of bamboo or four decks of cards!" H 
favorite instrument to play, howevc 
is the timpani. "I first started playir

There's a certain pride that comes 
/ith being a lifetime member of 01- 
'et's oldest singing tradition. Senior 
euben Lillie, a music education and 
ocal performance major, is one of 
le choir's newest members and is 
articularly excited about being a 
art of Testament Men's Choir. 

"It may just be a 'guy thing'," Reu- 
en says, "but being in a group of all 
len is so rewarding." 

Testament tours several weekends 
ach year to area churches where 
leir director, Dr. Neal Woodruff, leads 
lem in theireclectic selection of clas- 

sic hymns, gospel standards and a few 
unusual selections, here and there. 

The choir also participates in mu- 
sic department concerts, including 
the annual Sounds of the Season and 
"Messiah" performances. 

Having the opportunity to practice 
with the choir for a few hours every 
week allows Reuben and his fellow 
Testament men "to be free from other 
responsibilities, from our concerns ... 
and simply sing, pray and open God's 
Word together."

The Olivetians are passionate about 
singing, but they also have a strong 
desire to minister to people. Junior 
Jacqueline Owens says, "I absolutely 
love people and I love to sing even 
more. This group perfectly blends 
those two things together." Jacque- 
line says the group holds devotions 
and prays together, as "this is a key 
part to why our ministry is effective. 
We keep God at the forefront of our 
ministry. We give all the glory back to 
Him and know we are most effective 
as a group when we encourage each 

other." The Olivetians also have a erg 
zy side to them. As they drive back ;

group aims to grow closer every da

love and joy to others.

There's a quote Dr. Neal Woodruff, 
onductor of Olivet's University Or- 
chestra, is fond of: "Holy shoddy is still 
noddy." This Elton Trueblood gem 

a driving force to the mindset Dr. 
Woodruff brings to conducting: that 
good music-making is a profound 
ct of stewardship toward God." Good 
nusic making, however, requires a 
irge amount of patience. 

Junior Brian Kosek says, "The music 
akes time and practice and quite a 
it of hard work to learn." Brian is one 
f around 50 student members of the 
rchestra. Most of their performances 
re in Kresge, though they also tour 
iroughout the local district. Most 
tudent groups perform their own 
oncert literature, while the orchestra 
ccompanies such annual staples as 
■andel's "Messiah", the spring musi- 

cal, the Commencement concert and 
their own unique pieces. 

Freshman Kaleb Soller says, "It is a 
joy to me when others say they love 
it and they want to hear more. Many 
times I cannot express how good of a 
feeling it is when you know that you 
did your best and you put on such a 
fantastic performance." Kaleb's senti- 
ments reflect exactly what Dr. Wood- 
ruff is looking for: "[Musical] excel- 
lence provides a sense of credibility in 
the music marketplace."

People come to Olivet from 
ill over the world for many aff- 
erent reasons. For some, it is the 
^cademic programs, for some the 
jlhristian environment and teach- 
ers, for some the sports programs, 
: or some the location, for some 
:he people that they know, and 
or some it can be all of the above. 
Student Mirko Perkusich falls into 
every one of these categories. 

Mirko is originally from Campina 
jrande, Brazil. This city is located 
n the northeastern part of Brazil, 
vlirko attended a few semesters 
}f college at a school in Brazil. He 
decided, though, that he wanted to 
:ravel, so he chose to come to the 
Jnited States to finish his educa- 
:ion. During his time in the United 
states he attended a junior col- 
ege in Kansas. There, he roomed 
with Victor Mesquita. Victor had 
3 friend here at Olivet who rec- 
ommended the school to the two 

young men. They decided to follow 
this advice and both transferred 
to Olivet. At Olivet Mirko decided 
to major in computer engineering. 

Mirko is also a part of the ten- 
nis team, and this has been a very 
influential part of his Olivet expe- 
rience. Mirko says that playing ten- 
nis comes naturally to him. He says 
that he appreciates playing be- 
cause it helps him pay for school, 
as well as gives him an "opportu- 
nity to represent the University." 
Mirko first started playing tennis 
at the age of 12 in Brazil. He was 
drawn to the sport because "some 
friends started playing tennis after 
Gustavo Kuerten, a Brazilian tennis 
player, won Roland Garros." The Ro- 
land Garros, or the French Open, is 
a one of the most prestigious titles 
that a tennis player can earn, and 
this accomplishment inspired Mirko 
and his friends to pick up the sport. 

Since being at Olivet Mirko says 

that his hitting has improved. He 
says, "Having good practice part- 
ners helped me to improve my 
ground strokes." He echoes the fact 
that teammates are important to 
his development as a tennis player. 
"I made some good friends and 
had the opportunity to play and 
practice with good tennis players." 
Mirko says that he has always 
had a strong relationship with God 
and this has just continued on dur- 
ing his time at Olivet. He plans to 
graduate in December of 2010 
and then to go on to do master's 
programs in Europe. He is a very 
driven individual, ready to experi- 
ence new situations and oppor- 
tunities. He encourages others to 
"always have goals and work hard 
to achieve them." It seems that 
Mirko is a good example of this.

Though numbers-wise, the 2009 
"iger football season may not have 
Deen as positive as desired, that 
Jid not stop the season itself from 
Deing a positive experience for the 
earn and their new coach, Don 

The Tigers ended the season 
vith just a 2-1 1 record, but Don Lee 
ound in his team "a great chance 
o lay the foundation" for improve- 
nent next year. 

"The players never quit, no mat- 
er what. We were in a really tough 
.onference with a lot of top ten 

teams, and rebuilding a program 
is always tough against such oppo- 
nents," coach Lee says. 

The players responded posi- 
tively to the coaching change. Se- 
nior Joshua Tornstrom says that 
a new coaching staff meant many 
new players, and it "was fun for us 
to meet and mentor the numerous 

Both Joshua and fellow senior 
Lukas Burr emphasized the sense 
of brotherhood that is established 
within the team: "They will always 
have my back and support me in 

everything I do," Lukas says. 

This camaraderie carried the 
team throughout the season. "Even 
after our more embarrassing defeats 
I felt that our team gave its all so we 
could hold our heads high," Joshua 
says, taking his lessons learned on 
the football field beyond the white 
lines. "Life is so short you can't let 
yourself feel down about what's 
happening around you. You need 
to attack each day with a fury that 
can't be ignored."

Nothing about Olivet's cheerleading 
team, or its members, is stereotypical. 
Says Michael Bishop, "Our team has a 
lot of sweet, kind and caring people 
on it." Michael, a sophomore on the 
cheer squad, has wanted to be a lifter 
since he was in first grade, although 
he didn't have a chance to be on a 
team until he came to Olivet. One of 
the biggest misconceptions about 
male cheerleaders is, in his experi- 
ence, the motivation for joining. "We 
were all focused on performing the 
stunt right and keeping our team- 
mates safe. Physical attraction wasn't 
really a part of it." 

Practicing to make sure their team- 
mates are safe takes a lot of effort. In 
addition to regular practices, the team 
has up to four conditioning practices 
a week. They also repeat stunts over 
and over until they are sure they can 
do them correctly and safely. And 
this sport has a longer season than 
any other, starting with football and 
finishing with the end of basketball 

"Most people don't realize how 
much work and effort it takes to do 
the stunts we do," says Michael.

Olivet's men's soccer team is out 
o win. The Tigers won the CCAC 
ournament championship in 2009 
ind finished this year with an im- 
)ressive 15 wins. But that's not the 
lard part. 

"The most challenging part is 
iot becoming satisfied with what 
ve've accomplished," says fresh- 
nan Zachary Christensen, who 
ays any good team should be 
staying hungry for more champi- 

Teammate and fellow freshman 
Logan Engelkes agrees with Zach- 
ary's sentiment. 

"The student body should know 
that every day we go out there on 
that field and put forth our best 
effort and every ounce of energy 
and strength that we have in order 
to compete to the best of our abil- 
ity and represent all of them and 

While representing the school 
on the field, these players have 

the opportunity to bond with each 
other on and off the field. 

"Not only do we play soccer 
together, but we have become a 
family and I love that feeling." 

It's that culture of family that 
makes players like Logan devoted 
to "proving to myself and the oth- 
ers that I belonged there and that 
they could depend on me."

The women's soccer team has 
lown that they have what it takes 
j compete with the best in the 

At the end of their 2009 season, 
le Lady Tigers boasted an incred- 
)le 18 wins and only three losses. 

Freshman Katie Dirkse knows that 
owever great their team record 
iay be, her team is about some- 
ling greater. 

"Olivet's soccer program is not 
ist about winning games, but be- 
ig God's witnesses on the playing 
eld. We try to live our lives and play 
ur game as servants of the Lord. 

"Coming in as a freshman, I 
was scared to begin soccer and 
school. Butthe girls have been so in- 
viting and friendly, which has made 
my transition to college easier." 

The Lady Tigers' coaching staff, 
led by Bill Bahr, is central to keep- 
ing the team focused on being their 
absolute best. Katie and her team- 
mate, sophomore Caityln Beans, 
have experienced this first-hand. 

The coaching staff "encourages 
us and pushes us to play our best 
at all times for the glory of God," 
says Katie. Caityln remembers one 
game in particular when a coach 

let her know that she prayed for her 
the night before. "They are a good 
bunch of people," Caitlyn says.

What sets cross country at Ol- 
ivet apart from other schools is, 
according to runner Jerad Koch, 
definitely the atmosphere. Jerad 
looked at many schools before 
he made his college decision 
and finally settled on Olivet be- 
cause of the coaches and staff. 
"Olivet was more involved in 
excelling the life of the athlete 
outside of running rather than 
just using them as machines," 
he says. Their team camp is also 
one of every cross country run- 
ner's favorite parts of the season. 
They come together as strang- 
ers but, Jared says, "By the end 
of the week you feel like those 

people were with you for years." 
This year, the men finished 
first in the CCAC for the fourth 
consecutive time. Kenny Mac- 
Donough was the CCAC Runner 
of the Year, while coach Mike 
McDowell earned his fourth con- 
secutive CCAC Coach of the Year 
award. The team finished 11th 
in the NAIA National Meet and 
fifth at the NCCAA Nationals.

The Olivet men's tennis team 
had another phenomenal season 
in the fall of 2009, winning all of 
their fall matches for a record of 
4-0 as well as doing fairly well in 
the ITA Regionals. After compe- 
tign in the NAIA National Champi- 
onships and the NCCAA National 
Championships in the spring of 
2009, the men headed into the 
spring 2010 season ranked num- 
ber 23 in the NAIA. This team has 

definitely stuck with one another 
on and off the court. After tedious 
practices and workouts, the team 
seems to be bonding more than 
ever. It is not only about the sport 
itself, but also the spiritual fellow- 
ship of the men who are working 
together toward a common goal. 
Erinn Proehl is a freshman on 
the men's team. He says that he 
originally joined because the Ti- 
gers seemed to be a champion- 

ship team and that was . som< 
thing that he wanted to be a pa 
of. Later on he learned that "n< 
only are they dominant on tr 
courts, but they are dominai 
in spiritual leadersip and gui< 
ance, integrity, and motivatio

The 2009-2010 woman's ten- 
nis team finished the fall season 
with a 5-6 record, preparing them- 
selves for the spring competition. 
The team was made up of many 
new members this year because 
many players graduated last 
spring, but the freshmen stepped 
up to the challenge while the re- 
maining upperclassmen stepped 
up into the leadership positions. 

In addition to these challenges, a 
new coaching staff has been put into 
place for this season. David Vance 
is now the head coach of the team, 
working in conjunction with assistant 
coaches Gary Dupuis and Chris Tu- 
dor. Though the team was fairly new 
and had to work out the challenges 
that come with this, the coaches 
and the girls have consistently risen 
above adversity, winning four of 

their nine games in the fall season. 
Many of the players enjoy par- 
ticipating in this sport, even though 
the practices and games are very 
time consuming. Erica Engelbrecht, 
a senior, says that she loves how ten- 
nis gives her some break time from 
classes and school work and that 
"it is worth it to do something [she] 
loves." The team has definitely had 
many trials to overcome this sea- 
son, but they have tried their best 
and have come out with great atti- 
tudes of Christ-like sportsmanship.

The 2009-2010 season of Olivet 
men's basketball featured a milestone 
for head coach Ralph Hodge: on 
January 9, he reached the thousand- 
game plateau for his collegiate career. 

Unfortunately, the Tigers dropped 
that match to Campbellsville. 

The rest of the season, how- 
ever, was much in the Tigers' fa- 
vor. The team finished their sea- 
son 19-11, 8-2 in CCAC play. 

In post-season tournament play, 
theTigers reached the semifinals of the 
CCACTournament, falling to St. Xavier 
University. On the strength of their 
play, the team earned their fourth- 
straight NAIA National Tournament 
berth. At the tournament, the Tigers 
lost in the first round to Lee University. 

The Tigers' success can reasonably 

be attributed to two causes. First of 
all, the team has brutalized their op- 
ponents mathematically, outscoring 
them by nearly 300 points (1930- 
1693). Second, the team possesses a 
strong defense that is a direct prod- 
uct of the trust that exists between 
each player and his fellow teammates. 
"We function as one unit stopping 
five guys, where as other teams may 
play one on one within the larger sys-

Class, responsibility, selflessness, 
and cooperation: all qualities instilled 
into the women's basketball team by 
head coach Doug Porter that have 
helped the team tally eighteen NAIA 
Division I records since 2005, seven 
within the 2007-08 season alone. 

The LadyTigers routinely lead their 
division in scoring. In fact, despite fin- 
ishing their season 16-17, the team 
outscored their opponents 3227- 

Both Courtney Neil, senior guard, 
and McCall Kitchel, senior forward, at- 
test to the sense of teamwork that car- 
ries the team to these lofty heights. 

"We've got a great group of girls 

this year, and we function well to- 
gether, just as with any other team, 
there are occasional ups and downs, 
but they are things that never leave 
the court," McCall says. 

Courtney claims that the team 
works harder than any other team, 
which is due to the style of play cho- 
sen by coach Porter. 

This hard work and unity led the 
team to the final match of the CCAC 
Tournament, but the team came up 
short in their bid for a NAIA National 
Tournament berth, losing out to Saint

The women's volleyball team at 
Dlivet Nazarene University is more 
han just a sports team. They are 
i group of women committed to 
he sport and committed to hon- 
)ring God and each other through 
he competition. Senior Stephanie 
imith says, "The girls on the team 
lave worked hard to foster a spirit 
)f openness and acceptance." 

The team had a 36-10 overall 

record this year, they were CCAC 
Regular Season Champions (10-0), 
CCAC Tournament Champions and 
had a 2-2 record at the NAIA Na- 
tional Championships. 

For the players, it is not simply 
about reaching out to one another, 
but there is a strong emphasis to- 
ward service as well. Sara Byrne, a 
junior, says of the team, "We do a 
variety of service projects through- 

out our season and aim to continue 
serving in our off-season as well. 
We are a group of girls who love 
serving Christ!" 

This group of girls appreciates 
volleyball, but they also have a 
strong focus on fostering commu- 
nity between themselves and the 
area around them.

Junior Allyse Moore loves in- 
tramurals. "I've been involved in 
intramurals every semester start- 
ing my freshman year," she re- 
calls. Of all the sports Allyse has 
tried, flag football is her favorite. 
While she wouldn't say that being 
involved in intramurals is hard, it 
does frustrate her when people 
take the games too seriously and 
forget the real reason they play — 
to have fun. "The most rewarding 
part would probably be meeting 
people and making friends while 
running around and having fun, 
and just doing it all in a way that 
is glorifying to God," says Allyse. 
"It is good to have a healthy level 

■K r>: 

of competition and desire to win, 
[but] there's no reason to be rude 
or difficult on the field." Allyse re- 
members a funny game last year 
during which one of her team- 
mates, who was running with the 
ball, accidentally got pantsed by 
someone on the opposing team. 
"Well that's one way to bring 
the team to a more intimate and 
united level!" Allyse remembers 
the girl saying afterward. The 
moral of the story? Get involved 
in intramurals. And if it's flag foot- 
ball ... wear two pairs of pants.

A spring semester for the sports- 
>riented Olivetian is dominated by 
wo shapes: the diamond and the 
>val. For the ladies there is softball 
vhile the men have baseball, and 
)oth sexes share the track. Along- 
ide both of these are the rolling 
lills of the golf course. 

The softball team is a perennial 
)Owerhouse, winning an average 
if 45 games a season over the last 
4 years with five NAIA World Se- 
ies appearances. The 2009 season 
vas slightly below the lofty aver- 
ige, but still quite respectable, as 
he lady Tigers ended their season 
■ -24 with aCCAC record of 13-5. 

The baseball team is also histori- 

cally strong, with 11 consecutive 
winning seasons, two NAIA World 
Series appearances in the last de- 
cade, as well as a Christian College 
National Championship. The team 
ended the 2009 season with a 29- 
20 record. 

The men's and women's track 
teams also faired well in 2009. Ash- 
ley Fozkos finished first in the pole 
vault at the NCCAA national meet 
in Cedarville and repeated that feat 
in 2010. Ashley also earned All- 
American honors at the NAIA na- 
tional indoor meet in Johnson City 
in 2009. 

On the men's side, the 4x800 
meter relay team took top honors 

at the 2009 NCCAA national meet, 
while Kendal Thomas earned All- 
American honors in the hammer 
throw at the 2009 NAIA national 
indoor meet. 

Golf, one of the few sports that 
takes place in both semesters, had 
a productive fall semester, with se- 
niors Seth Doran and Jordan Dillard 
and freshmen Andrew Woodhull all 
placing within the top 20 golfers 
at Millikin University's Big Blue Fall 
Classic to lead the team to victory 
in that tournament.

And there's a sprout, 
perhaps not all that 

impressive, but its roots 
will hold. They'll do 

more than hold, actually. 

They'll tell the story of 

what this fledgling tree 
will become. 

"But blessed 
is the man 
ujho trusts 

in the LORD. 

is in him." 


They'll tell the story of 

roots that found rich 

soil, and dug deeper, 

and of roots that found 

the water they needed 

in order to grow. 

They'll prove their 

strength, built up with 

constant nourishment 

from their environment 

year after year. 

"He ujill be 

like a tree 

planted bu 

the luater 

that sends out 

its roots bu 

the stream." 

And with that strength, 

these roots can be 

ready for what's waiting 

beyond the topsoil. 

They will sustain the 

young tree even as the 

harsh sun and wind try 

to dry it up before it 

has a chance. 

"It does 

not fear 

u/hen heat 

comes: its 

leaves are 

aluuaus cfreen. 

Rather than succumb, 

rather than dry up or 

wait passively for the 

drought to pass, this 

tree will tell of its roots 

and the deep water that 

sustains it by stretching 

out branches of its 

own and, in due time, 

producing fruit as rich 

as the soil where the 

roots first took hold. 

it has no 

ujorries in 

a uear of 


and r\ever fails 

to bear fruit." 

Jeremiah 17:7-8 



First of all, I want to thank God 
for standing by me through every- 
thing. This year was quite an experi- 
ence, but You made it a great one. I 
learned so much about You and my- 
self this year and I cannot thank You 
enough for that. 
My Family 

Thank you for your constant sup- 
port and encouragement through- 
out my whole college career, but 
specifically with yearbook. I appre- 
ciate hearing how proud you are of 
me more than you will ever know. I 
love you! 

Thank you for leading me into 
this position. You really taught me 
everything I know. You were always 
there whenever I had a question (or 
a list of questions), even this year 
when you weren't involved in year- 
book anymore. Besides yearbook, 
though, thanks for just being one of 
my best friends. You are always so 
supportive of me and I cannot say 
thank you enough for that. 
My Roommates 

Thank you for being so supportive 
of me in my decision to take this po- 
sition. I know it took me away from 
the apartment a lot, but I am so 
thankful for you guys. I always loved 
when you came to visit me in my of- 
fice! Thanks for putting up with me 
when all I talked about (or vented 
about) was yearbook at times. I love 
you the three of you so much! 
The Fab Five 

Lindsay, Christi, Sara and Jen, 
thank you for simply supporting me 
and being my best friends. You guys 
always asked about yearbook and 
encouraged me in this position and 
I am so thankful for that. I love you 
My Friends 

Thank you for your constant sup- 
port throughout the years. I wish I 
could take the time to thank all of 
you individually, but that could take 
up a few pages. So thanks to the few 
of you at Olivet who were constantly 
stopping by to visit me in the office. 

To those of you at home, thanks for 
always asking about how the year- 
book was coming along. I couldn't 
have done this without you guys 
and I really mean that. 

Thanks for such a great year. I re- 
ally learned a lot from each of you 
and enjoyed all of the time we got 
to spend together. Thanks for all of 
your support with the yearbook, but 
also just in my life. I really appreciate 
you guys and all of the hard work 
you put into each of your positions. 

You were the best assistant any- 
one could ask for. Whenever I need- 
ed anything you were willing and 
available to either do it yourself or 
help me do it. Your assistance was 
greatly missed second semester, but 
you still made an effort to do what 
you could from LA. That willingness 
meant a lot to the staff and me. As 
executive photographer, you made 
sure the photo part of the book was 
done well. You only allowed the 
best photos and that's part of what 
made the book so great. 

This book wouldn't be as well 
designed or detail oriented with- 
out you. You made sure that even 
the smallest details were not over- 
looked. Thank you so much for 
kind of taking Brent's place second 
semester. I couldn't have done it 
without you. And of course, thanks 
for always bringing laughter to the 
group even during the most stress- 
ful times. 
Dan and Kayla 

I cannot thank you two enough 
for your work as the executive writ- 
ers. Dan, thanks for coming in last 
minute to cover this position. You 
did a great job and always made 
sure our writing was at the highest 
quality. Kayla, I cannot thank you 
enough for coming back to be the 
executive writer second semester. 
Your organization was an essential 
asset to getting things done on 
time. And of course, you are just so 

much fun to work with! 
Design Team 

Thank you for being so creative 
and innovative with our book this 
year. You put so much work into 
making sure the designs were per- 
fect and I appreciate that. 
Photo Team 

Thank you for being so on top 
of things. You were constantly go- 
ing above and beyond your assign- 
ments with creativity. 
Writing Team 

Thank you for your excellent 
writing skills. You guys were always 
open to new ideas and I loved that. 
Business Team 

You guys were so helpful this 
year! Thank you for being so per- 
sistent in selling and designing ads. 
You helped us to do better in our ad 
sales than we have in a few years. 

Thank you so much for your guid- 
ance this year. You always had the 
answers to my questions and if you 
didn't know them, you found it. I al- 
ways enjoyed the end of our weekly 
meetings where you asked how I 
was doing. I really appreciated that! 

Thank you for being so support- 
ive of the yearbook and just the stu- 
dents in general. I specifically want 
to thank you for your support in our 
photography equipment purchases. 
We are so thankful for that because 
it allows us to produce a better book 
for the students! 
Valerie and Walsworth 

It was great working with you this 
year. You were always so incredibly 
helpful. I always appreciated your 
suggestions for different things. 
Thank you for always answering all 
of my questions. The computer sup- 
port was constantly helping us with 
random issues and we couldn't be 
more thankful for that.
